“Superstore” starring America Ferrera and Ben Feldman revolves around a unique family of employees at a super-sized megastore.

Ferrera’s casting marks her return to series TV since wrapping her award-winning role on ABC’s “Ugly Betty” in 2010.

Other cast members include Mark McKinney, Lauren Ash, Colton Dunn, Nichole Bloom and Nico Santos.

Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner executive-produced “Crowded” also joins the Peacock’s schedule. The show features empty nesters Mike (Patrick Warburton) and Martina (Carrie Preston). After 20 years of parenting, they are finally reclaiming their wild side. But when both of their grown daughters unexpectedly move back in, they are forced to scratch their plans to move to Florida.

The show stars Warburton, Preston, Stacy Keach, Carlease Burke, Mia Serafino and Miranda Cosgrove. Suzanne Martin serves as writer and executive producer, and Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner are also executive producing. James Burrows will direct, and the show is produced by Universal Television and Hazy Mills Productions

The show is being executive produced by Justin Spitzer, who also serves as a writer, as well as Ruben Fleischer and David Bernad. “Superstore” is produced by Universal Television and the District.
