Pilot News: Harold Perrineau Joins NBC Family
Harold Perrineau has landed a co-starring role in the NBC comedy pilot Family Guide.
From Bent‘s DJ Nash, the single-camera sitcom centers on Henry, a son (played by Eli Baker) who idolizes his blind father (JK Simmons) and enjoys his mom’s (Parker Posey) newfound adolescence after his parents split. Ultimately, however, the trio grows closer post-divorce.
Perrineau — who most recently recurred on Sons of Anarchy — will play an apartment manager who befriends Henry, our sister site Deadline reports.
Jason Bateman (Arrested Development) and Jim Garavente (Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium) will also exec-produce the project, with Friends vet David Schwimmer directing.
