Last semi-memorably seen on the not-great Comedy Central series Big Lake, SNL alum Horatio Sanz is joining an untitled new ABC pilot from Kari Lizer (The New Adventures of Old Christine, Will & Grace). The show will star Mary McCormack as a newly unemployed executive faced with full-time motherdom to her two teens. According to Deadline, Sanz “will play the put-upon, wry-humored Jonathan,” a neighbor and stay-home dad with 2-year-old twin girls. Despite the series falling squarely into at least two of the trends dominating this year’s crop of new pilots, Sanz is a good dude to root for.
