Pilot Scoop: Allison Janney, Tony Shalhoub Come to Dinner in NBC's Greg Daniels Comedy

Guess who’s coming to Friday Night Dinner?

Allison Janney and Tony Shalhoub have been cast in the Greg Daniels-helmed NBC comedy pilot, which centers on a quirky family that — you guessed it — dines together each Friday evening.

The Emmy-winning duo (her for West Wing, him for Monk) will play Barbara and Gene, the parental units of the family.

Daniels — who also brought The Office to the States — adapted the single-camera Friday Night Dinner from the UK series by the same name. Tamsin Greig (Showtime’s Episodes) and Paul Ritter (BBC’s Land Girls) played the aforementioned roles on the British version.
