Pilot News: Harold Perrineau Joins NBC Family

Family Guide SpoilersHarold 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.
