ENTOURAGE's Kevin Connolly is prepping for his primetime return.
The multi-camera project, from Dana Klein, will be directed by James Burrows and will be produced by 20th Century FOX TV and Kaplan Entertainment. The comedy follows a group of 30something friends who each think the other has a better life.
Connolly will play Van Der Beek's best friends, 'Bobby Lutz,' a gynecologist, father and loving husband. Lutz is described as "more of a girls' guy than a guys' guy" and "former nerd."
Van Der Beek will portray 'Will,' described as "a sarcastic gynecologist who expects the absolute worst from everyone after his (soon-to-be) ex-wife's infidelity."
Brooklyn Decker and Rick Donald have also inked deals to co-star.
For the entire announcement, head on over to The Hollywood Reporter.
The former ENTOURAGE star will reprise his role as 'Eric Murphy' in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of the hit HBO series. He has also appeared in such films as THE NOTEBOOK, JOHN Q, and HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU.
The Dawson's Creek alum is currently featured in the Geffen Playhouse's production of The Gift. He will next be seen on the big screen in Jason Reitman's Labor Day. Van Der Beek is the second Apt. 23 cast member to book a pilot. His former co-star Krysten Ritter will headline NBC's comedy Assistance.
