Kristin Chenoweth could be returning to network television this fall, if all goes according to plan.
The untitled multicamera comedy focuses on Jack (Broderick), a recently widowed father juggling raising his 12-year-old son with a return to the dating pool. Chenoweth will play Jack’s cute and judgmental sister Marnie, who works in a restaurant as a waitress.
The pilot comes from “Scrubs” alum Tad Quill, who will write and executive produce. James Burrows has been tapped to direct.
The project is Chenoweth’s return to CBS, where she booked a major guest-starring arc on “The Good Wife” this season that was cut short when she was injured in an on-set accident. It also marks a reunion with Broderick. The two starred opposite one another in the 2003 TV film version of “The Music Man,” which aired on ABC.
