Michael Mosley (Sirens), Lindsey Kraft (Getting On) and Michelle Buteau (Key & Peele) are set as series regulars on Dream Team, ABC’s single-camera half-hour from comedy writers Kari Lizer and Bill Wrubel, and Warner Horizon TV.
Written/executive produced by Lizer and Wrubel, Dream Team centers on Marty Schumacher, who coached his last Club soccer team for ten years, ultimately taking them to the National Championships. He now has to start from scratch with a diverse group of eight-year-olds, and their disparate parents.
Mosley will play Rick Johnson. Although he doesn’t consider girls’ soccer a “real sport,” he’s completely on board with getting his daughter, Tiffnee, onto a top-notch soccer team. Kraft will play Michaela, who’s married to Leslie (a competitive OB-GYN with a passion for sports) and is horrified by the idea of being a soccer mom, knowing full well most of the heavy lifting will fall to her. Buteau is Olga Diaz, the mother of 11-year-old Vanessa, who’s vying for a spot on the soccer team. Olga approaches everything as if it’s a competition she’s got to win.
Mosley starred as Johnny on USA’s Sirens, and recurred on Castle and Longmire. He is repped by Gersh. Kraft played Marguerite Macaw on HBO’s Getting On. She is repped by The Burstein Co. and SDB Partners.
