Former 30 Rock co-star Jack McBrayer is reuniting with the Emmy-winning NBC comedy’s co-executive producer Matt Hubbard on Hubbard’s new single-camera comedy pilot for NBC. McBrayer is set to co-star opposite Chris Smith and Elizabeth Ho in the untitled pilot, written/executive produced by Hubbard and executive produced by Mike Schur. The project revolves around Andrew (Smith) and Josie (Ho), a happily married interracial couple whose lives take a turn when they move close to Josie’s family in Missouri. McBrayer will play Gary, the sycophantic chief instructor at the Tae Kwon Do Academy owned by Josie’s father Jae. Gary looks up to Jae as a father, and fears that Andrew may jeopardize his relationship with Grandmaster Kim. 3 Arts’ David Miner also exec produces.
McBrayer, who earned 3 Emmy nominations for his role as the wide-eyed page Kenneth on 30 Rock and its digital offshoot, has been recurring on The Middle and Todd Margaret. He is repped by UTA.
