Rob Huebel Will Star in a New CBS Pilot with Patrick Warburton

By

Childrens Hospital and Human Giant star Rob Huebel has a new show in development. Deadline reports that Huebel has been cast as one of the two leads, alongside Patrick Warburton, in a new CBS pilot called Jacked Up. Written by Greg Malins (How I Met Your Mother, Friends) and directed by Fred Savage, the pilot follows a recently retired baseball player named Jack (Warburton) who sets out to find a wife with help from his friend Barry (Huebel), who’s divorced and owns a sports bar. Huebel also has a potentially-recurring guest spot lined up in ABC’s pilot Bad Management. The Warburton/Huebel pairing sounds like a fun one and a divorced sports bar owner sounds like a solid Rob Huebel character. It’s just a shame there’s not much room on the schedule for this and other promising CBS pilots after the network renewed almost all its shows yesterday.
