Nancy Lenehan Joins CBS Pilot from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck

Nancy Lenehan

Nancy Lenehan has been cast as the family matriarch in “More Time with the Family,” the CBS comedy pilot executive produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

The half-hour multicamera project produced by 20th Century Fox Television stars Tom Papa as a husband and father who decides to make a career change so he can, as the show’s title suggests, spend more time with his family. Lenehan (“The New Adventures of Old Christine”) will play Tom’s mother. Joe Pantoliano has already been cast as his father.

The cast also includes Alyson Hannigan, Jack Gore and Zoe Pessin.

Damon and Affleck are exec producing through their Pearl Street shingle. Scribes Josh Goldsmith, Cathy Yuspa and Papa will also exec produce with 3 Arts’ Dave Becky and Josh Lieberman.

Lenehan is repped by Pakula/King & Associates, Imperium 7 Talent Agency and Meghan Schumacher Management.

  1. Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress
    because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another
    platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  2. Question says:

    Is it true that Ben Affleck was supposed to be starring in The Archimedes Trap as Charles the main character. I read that somewhere that the writer had him as her first choice as a lead.
