The O.C. alum Adam Brody will lead the ensemble cast of CBS’ untitled comedy pilot written by former Modern Family executive producer Dan O’Shannon and writer Peter Warren. Directed by Pam Fryman, the project revolves around a group of friends and family at three different times in their lives. Brody will play Andrew, a guy who sees the best in everything. Even at 40, when life’s twists and turns have taken a bit of wind out of his sails, it only takes the reappearance of his childhood crush, Holly, to awaken his love of life and belief in happy endings. In the CBS TV Studios-produced pilot, Brody joins previously cast Tyler Labine and Kelly O’Sullivan. O’Shannon, Fryman, Dennis Erdman, Clark Peterson and Eric & Kim Tannenbaum executive produce.

Brody’s comedy series credits include Yahoo’s Burning Love and DirecTV’s Billy & Billie.
