David Giuntoli To Star In ABC Pilot ‘A Million Little Things’ From DJ Nash

Former Grimm star David Giuntoli has been cast as one of the leads in ABC’s ensemble drama pilot A Million Little Things, from writer DJ Nash, Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment and ABC Studios.

A Million Little Things, whose title stems from the popular adage,”Friendship isn’t a big thing – it’s a million little things,” is described as being in the tone of The Big Chill. The hourlong drama with comedy elements is about a group of friends who, for different reasons and in different ways, are all stuck in their lives, but when one of them dies unexpectedly, it’s just the wake-up call the others need to finally start living.

Giuntoli will play Eddie, the former front man of a local band turned music teacher and stay-at-home dad. His marriage is in trouble, and although he loves being a dad, he wonders what his life would have been like had he made different choices.

The former Grimm leading man was among the heavily sought-after actors for pilots this season and fielded multiple offers before choosing the This Is Us-esque A Million Little Thing. 

DJ Nash penned the script and executive produces with Kapital Entertainment’s Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor.

Giuntoli’s film credits include a starring role in Michael Bay’s Paramount Pictures film 13 Hours. He is repped by WME, Berwick & Kovacik and Adam Kaller.
