There will be a recasting on NBC‘s newly picked up comedy series The Family Guide, from DJ Nash. Parker Posey, who played the female lead in the pilot, won’t continue on the series. The project, written/exec produced by Nash, is about a son who idolizes his blind father (J.K. Simmons) and is bemused by his mother’s newfound adolescence who watches his family come closer together post-divorce. Posey played the mother. Technically, The Family Guide also doesn’t have a male lead at the moment as Simmons co-stars on the ABC series Family Tools. He is expected to be released soon as Family Tools will be cancelled.
