Robbie Amell (True Jackson, VP) has landed the second lead opposite Colin Ferguson in Bill Lawrence’s Fox pilot Like Father. The project, from Warner Bros. TV, is inspired by Lawrence’s real-life experience and centers on a father-son relationship. It revolves around college student Will Lyons (Amell), who is coping with the recent death of his mother. Concerned over Will’s emotional reticence, Will’s father Van Lyons (Ferguson), nicknamed “The Hurricane” for his bombastic personality, moves into his son’s campus apartment. Amell is with ICM, Coast to Coast and Protégé Entertainment. Amell follows in the footsteps of Zach Braff who also got his first lead role on a Bill Lawrence comedy series, Scrubs.
