Tommy Dewey has landed a lead role in Dads, Fox‘s six-episode multi-camera comedy series from Ted co-writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild and co-writer/director/star Seth MacFarlane. Written by Sulkin and Wild, Dads centers on two successful guys in their 30s, Eli and Warner (Dewey), who have their lives turned upside down when their nightmare dads unexpectedly move in with them. Warner is the co-owner of a successful videogame company, a family man with a wife he loves and two young kids he adores. Since ever-feckless father Crawford has come to live with him, Warner spends his free time worrying and fretting about the next catastrophe Crawford will cause. 20th Century Fox TV is producing.

Dewey is favorite of Fox brass. He played the co-lead in the network’s 2011 comedy pilot Tagged and just wrapped a major recurring role on Fox’s freshman comedy series The Mindy Project. He is repped by the Kohner Agency and New Wave.
