Jason Ritter to topline “Friends & Family” Fox‘s comedy pilot

PanARMENIAN.Net - Jason Ritter is set as the male lead in Friends & Family, Fox‘s single-camera comedy pilot from writer David Rosen, Sony TV and BBC Worldwide Prods. Based on the UK series Gavin & Stacey, Friends & Family focuses on the key life moments for Gavin (Ritter) and Stacey, who try to maintain their relationship while combining their polarizing families’ lives, Deadline said.

Gavin is described as adorably neurotic, a good guy who’s excited about his first real date with Stacey, a co-worker from rural Pennsylvania he’s become friends with through Skype and Facebook. Ritter, repped by ICM Partners and the Burstein Co., was among the sought after young actors this pilot season.

He recently recurred on NBC’s Parenthood and last season toplined NBC’s drama pilot County.
