EXCLUSIVE: It’s good news for CBS’ comedy Bleep My Dad Says. The hot pilot is on the verge of a series pickup and is already making deals with writers. But when it officially becomes a series, it will be with a new lead. I hear the network has decided to replace Ryan Devlin, who starred in the pilot. Based on the Twitter account, Bleep centers on a young guy, the role that will be recast, and his opinionated dad, played by William Shatner. Twitter star Justin Halpern, on whom the main character is based, co-wrote the WBTV-produced pilot with Patrick Schumacker, with Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick executive producing.
