Acting vets Stockard Channing (The West Wing) and Kurt Fuller (Psych, Better with You, etc.) have joined the cast of ABC’s Untitled Mandy Moore Project, a half-hour comedy that revolves around newlyweds Annie (Moore) and Ben, who open a hip, new restaurant in Annie’s hometown bringing her closer to her needy and high maintenance family.
Channing plays Barbara, Annie’s warm, devoted and sometimes overbearing mother. Fuller, meanwhile, plays her good-natured dad Steve, who’s used to taking a backseat to his take-charge wife.
Shawn Levy (Date Night) is attached to exec produce and direct the pilot. Bob Fisher (Traffic Light) and Stacy Traub (Notes From the Underbelly) penned the script.
