Monica Potter‘s untitled NBC comedy pilot just upped its ex factor.
The potential series has signed Eddie Cibrian (Third Watch), Donald Faison (Scrubs, The Exes) and Rory Scovel (Ground Floor) to play the three former husbands of Potter’s character, TVLine has learned.
In addition, Cougar Town alum Josh Hopkins has joined the cast as Potter’s current love interest.
The multi-cam project — which Potter also will executive-produce, alongside Ellen DeGeneres — revolves around Potter’s Bridget, whose dating life is complicated by her busy family and her three ex-husbands.
Cibrian’s Jason, a slick professional gambler who fathered Bridget’s daughter Jessica, is Bridget’s first ex (and is slightly territorial when it comes to his former wife).
He’s followed by Ex #2, Faison’s Kevin, an upbeat environmentalist who happens to have a lot of cash; Kevin is the dad of Bridget’s son, Ty.
Finally, Scovel plays Ex #3, Robert, a stuck-up writer/college professor who went to Harvard (Ground Floor shout-out?) and is insufferable in reminding everyone of that (despite the fact that he now lives with his mom). Robert sired Bridget’s son, Dylan.
Being thrice unlucky in romance apparently hasn’t deterred Potter’s alter ego from trying again: Hopkins’ Tom is a veterinarian who’s known animal lover Bridget for years, and they’re in the first stages of puppy love.
If Potter’s project is picked up to series, TVLine has learned, Faison will not continue with a potential fifth season of his current gig: TVLand’s The Exes.
