David Walton CBS Pilot

TVLine Items: David Walton Joins CBS Pilot, ATX's Alias Reunion and More

David Walton is moving in next door to Royal Pains star Mark Feuerstein.

The About a Boy alum has been cast in the CBS comedy pilot 9J, 9K and 9L, based on Feuerstein’s life, our sister site Deadline reports.

The multi-cam project — written by Feuerstein’s wife Dana Klein (Friends With Better Lives) — is inspired by the time when he lived in an apartment sandwiched between his parents’ unit and that of his brother, sister-in-law and their baby. Walton will play the successful, narcissistic and very competitive brother of Feuerstein’s character.
