Move over, “New Girl,” Damon Wayans Jr. has a new comedy on the horizon. The “Happy Endings” alum is set to star in “Man/Child,” a single-camera comedy that has earned a pilot production commitment from Fox, according to Deadline.
“Man/Child” reportedly centers around two single dads (one to be played by Wayans), who move in together and struggle to find the balance between being responsible parents and debaucherous bachelors.
The pilot is written by “Wilfred” executive producers Reed Agnew & Eli Jorne and will be directed by Jason Winer, whose Small Dog Picture Co is producing along with 20th TV.
Wayans will also reprise his role as Coach in a multi-episode arc during “New Girl’s” third season. He appeared in the Fox comedy’s pilot, but the role was in second position to “Happy Endings,” which was renewed — causing “New Girl” to replace his character with Lamorne Morris’ Winston from episode 2.
