Scoop: Freddie Prinze Jr. Joins NBC Comedy Pilot From Community Scribe Hilary Winston

Freddie Prinze Jr. is returning to the sitcom world with a role in NBC’s untitled comedy pilot from Community writer Hilary Winston.

Prinze’s previous TV credits include the short-lived ABC comedy Freddie and 24.

As TVLine reported early Tuesday, Growing Pains vet Joanna Kerns will play Agnes’ mom.

Winston penned the pilot and will serve as EP alongside Jamie Tarses (Happy Endings, My Boys) and Julia Franz (Scrubs).
