Pilot News: Ken Jeong Is ABC's Dr. Ken

ABC Pilot Dr. Ken

ABC has made an appointment with Dr. Ken, a comedy pilot starring Community‘s Ken Jeong.

Penned by Jeong — who in real life has his M.D. degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill — Jared Stern (Mr. Popper’s Penguins) and Funny or Die’s Mike O’Connell, the project stars Jeong as a frustrated HMO doctor who is juggling medicine, marriage and parenting — and succeeding at none of them.

ABC’s previous comedy orders this pilot season include Chev & Bev (starring Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo), The Brainy Bunch (about genius moppets), Family Fortune (starring Fortune Feimster as a newly out gym teacher) and an African-American take on the John Candy movie Uncle Buck.
