Matt Walsh To Star In ABC Family Comedy Pilot
Matt Walsh is set to star in Happy Accident, according to Deadline.
The ABC single-camera family comedy hails from Modern Family writers Abraham Higginbotham and Jon Pollack, 20th Century FOX TV, where both Higginbotham and Pollack are under overall deals, and ABC Studios. Higginbotham and Pollack wrote and executive produce the series.
Happy Accident centers around two Pittsburgh families - a father, Bud (Walsh), with three adult daughters, and a hotel lounge singer with her med student son - who are forced together after a decades-old secret is revealed.
Walsh is best known for his Emmy nominated role as Former White House Press Secretary Mike McLintock on HBO's Veep. He will next be seen in the feature Under the Eiffel Tower.
Happy Accident and NYPD Blue are the two 20th/ABC Studios pilots that have received early orders by ABC.
