Ian Gomez has committed to ABC’s marriage comedy pilot, “The 46 Percenters.”
The “Cougar Town” actor has signed up to play the lead role of Robert on the multi-cam comedy pilot, TheWrap has learned.
“The 46 Percenters” is described as an unromantic romantic comedy about the 46 percent of the population who choose to stay married, which is told through the point of view of three couples.
Robert is described as a smart, funny, no bull kind of guy. He’s super affable, but can go from zero to 60 pretty fast. He has a hectic life: he’s a high-school teacher, a very hands on dad. He loves his family, is crazy in love with his wife, Judy, but is missing the intimate connection he used to have with her. And he’s determined to get that connection back.
He joins “The Office’s” Angela Kinsey on the pilot’s cast.
Gomez currently stars as Andy Torres on TBS’s “Cougar Town.” Currently, it’s airing its sixth and final season. The role brings Gomez back into the ABC fold, as “Cougar Town” aired its first three seasons on the broadcast network.
In addition to “Cougar Town,” Gomez starred on Lifetime’s “Rita Rocks” for two seasons. He has also guest-starred on “Drop Dead Diva,” “Touch” and “The Middle,” among others.
Written and executive produced by “I Hate My Teenage Daughter” creators Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer, “The 46 Percenters” is produced by Warner Bros. Television.
