Comedian J.B. Smoove, who has starred on Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm, has just signed a major talent deal with Sony Pictures TV. According to Variety, under terms of the agreement, Smoove will star in a recurring role on the studio's Fox sitcom 'Til Death. At the same time, Sony will develop TV projects for him. They plan to give Smoove an Internet presence.
'Til Death will star Smoove opposite Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher. When Garrett's character signs up to be a Big Brother volunteer, he's assigned to the grown-up Smoove, who, through a computer glitch, is still on the group's list.
Fox plans to air the 'Til Death episodes with J.B. Smoove around April.
