Exclusive: Sitcom Vet Josh Cooke Cast as One of TV Land's Brothers-in-Law

Having dabbled in (dark) drama on Dexter, Josh Cooke is returning to his sitcom roots, as one of the Brothers-in-Law in a pilot for TV Land, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Executive-produced by Scott Stuber (Whitney), Bill Martin and Mike Schiff (3rd Rock From the Sun), Brothers-in-Law revolves around Neil (Cooke), a regular Joe who is repeatedly forced to spend time with the eccentric fiancé of his wife’s twin sister, even though the guys share nothing in common.

Brothers-in-Law received a cast-contingent pilot order in May, along with I’m Not Dead Yet, a single-camera comedy about a man who finds out that he has a possibly fatal heart condition and thus decides to start speaking his mind and living life to the fullest.

  • Well if it’s half as funny as TVLand’s other sitcoms since Hot in Cleveland (Retired at 35, Happily Divorced, Soul Man) that means it will be twice as terrible…
