Michael Chiklis, Cheryl Hines Join NBC Comedy Pilot ‘Cuckoo’

Michael Chiklis and Cheryl Hines have joined the cast of the NBC comedy pilot “Cuckoo.”

The Lionsgate TV series is based on the BBC3 comedy series that starred Andy Samberg in its first season as a hippie who winds up married to the daughter of a conservative couple.

Chiklis will play a successful lawyer who is determined to rid himself of his son-in-law. Hines will play a fun-loving woman who welcomes the new member of the family, played by Flula Borg, and the changes in her daughter, played by Rachel DiPillo.

Landing Chiklis is a coup for the project. The Emmy-winning star of “The Shield” is known for his versatility with both comedy and drama.

Tim Long is showrunner and exec producer along with writers Robin French and Kieron Quirke. Ash Atalla, who shepherded the British series, is also an exec producer.
