Pilot Scoop: Nick Zano to Star in NBC's Ellen DeGeneres-Produced Gay/Straight Comedy
Ellen DeGeneres has found the male lead for her reverse-Will & Grace comedy One Big Happy.
Ubiquitous sitcom guest star Nick Zano (Mom, 2 Broke Girls, Happy Endings) is set to star in DeGeneres-produced NBC pilot, which centers on a lesbian named Lizzy and her straight male BFF Luke (Zano) who have been trying to have a baby via artificial insemination for some time now. They finally get pregnant — just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life.
2 Broke Girls producer/writer Liz Feldman is penning the script and will serve as an EP alongside Jeff Kleeman and DeGeneres.
