The potential new series tells the story of a dying man named Michael who enlists the help of five of his male friends to form a “council of dads” for his two children, Deadline reports. Bornheimer, who joins the already-cast Diane Farr, Patrick Breen and Ken Howard, fills the part of “fun dad” perfectly, which calls for a funny, loud, larger than life personality.
Bornheimer’s Council casting is technically in second position to NBC’s Perfect Couples, whose future is still up in the air.
