Geoff Pierson (Boardwalk Empire) is set to co-star opposite Josh Cooke and Jay Mohr in TV Land’s multi-camera comedy pilot Brothers-In-Law. Written and executive produced by Bill Martin and Mike Schiff, Brothers-In-Law revolves around the family dynamic between a husband (Cooke) and the eccentric new boyfriend (Mohr) of his wife’s fraternal twin sister (Ellen Woglom), who have nothing in common but the sisters constantly force them to bond. Pierson, repped by the Stone Manners Salners Agency and attorney Tom Hoberman, will play Tom, sisters Cheska and Maddie’s (Woglom) father. He’s overtly antagonistic towards Cheska’s husband Neil (Cooke) but instantly hits it off with Maddie’s new boyfriend Van (Mohr) and thinks he is twice the man Neil is.
Charlie Robinson (Night Court) booked a new series regular role on the next season of BET comedy series Reed Between The Lines, playing star Malcolm Jamal Warner’s father, Monroe Reed. The actor, repped by Stone Manners Salners and manager Bruce Tufeld, just finished the run of August Wilson’s Jitney at Pasadena Playhouse.
