Geoff Stults, the star of the Fox/20th TV Bones spinoff The Finder, is set as the lead of another Fox/20th TV project, single-camera comedy pilot Enlisted. The casting stems from the talent deal Stults signed with 20th TV in September. Written by Cougar Town co-creator Kevin Biegel based on his relationship with his siblings, Enlisted follows three very different brothers working together in the Army. It centers on Sgt. Pete Waits (Stults) who, after a stint in Afghanistan, is stationed at a small military base in Florida to tackle the toughest job of them all — leading his dysfunctional brothers’ squad. Biegel executive produces with Mike Royce. Stults, repped by UTA and Thruline, joins previously cast Keith David. He recently recurred on the freshman Fox/20th TV comedy Ben And Kate.
