PILOTS: “FlashForward’s” Zachary Knighton goes for laughs

Zachary_knightonIn Zachary Knighton’s “FlashForward,” he’s been cast in a new ABC pilot.

Alphabet net’s clearly a big fan of Knighton, as the “FlashForward” thesp has been cast to star in the sitcom pilot formerly known as “Happy Endings.”

Currently referred to as the “Untitled David Caspe comedy pilot,” the project centers on Dave (Knighton), a groom whose bride (Elisha Cuthbert) leaves him at the altar.

Pilot casting is in second position to “FlashForward” — and this might be taken as a further sign that “FlashForward” isn’t likely to return next season. But given that a second season would likely take a new story path anyway, “FlashForward” could easily move on without Knighton should he be needed for the Caspe pilot.

Knight’s other credits include “Bones” and “Life on a Stick.”

Table read for the pilot takes place today — which means the Knighton casting came just under the wire. Sony Pictures TV is behind the pilot, along with ABC Studios and Fanfare. 

Pilot also stars Casey Wilson, Eliza Coupe, Damon Wayans Jr. and Adam Pally. Caspe, Jamie Tarses and Jonathan Groff are the exec producers, while Joe and Anthony Russo are directing.
