Comedian Andy Daly Joins ABC Family Comedy Pilot ‘Chunk & Bean’

Andy Daly has joined the growing ensemble of ABC’s family comedy pilot “Chunk & Bean,” Variety has learned.

The comedian will co-star alongside the previously announced Anna Gunn (“Breaking Bad”) and Adam Rodriguez (“Empire”).

Chunk & Bean” centers on the unlikely friendship of two misfits, Chunk and Bean, who benefit from having two very different sets of parents living next door to each other. Daly will play Stuart Dawson, Chunk’s father and Anna Gunn’s on-screen husband.

Ed Herro and Brian Donovan created “Chunk & Bean,” which is based on their childhood. The duo will exec produce the single-cam comedy, along with Dave Hemingson.

Daly’s casting in the network pilot comes the day after he agreed to a shortened limited third season of his Comedy Central series “Review,” which will be the final season of the mockumentary laffer. Daly’s other recent TV credits include “Grandfathered,” “Black-ish,” “Silicon Valley,” “The League,” “Modern Family” and “Comedy Bang! Bang!” Should “Chunk & Bean” go to series, the project would mark Daly’s first leading role on broadcast TV.

Daly is repped by UTA and Principato Young.
