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.
In addition to his stint on Dexter (which will continue into Season 7), Cooke’s TV credits include Better With You, Scrubs and Committed.
