Stephen Schneider is set as the male lead in ABC’s untitled live-action/CGI comedy pilot from The Goldbergs creator/executive producer Adam F. Goldberg and executive producer David Guarascio, as well as animator Patrick Osborne, Happy Madison and Sony Pictures TV.
Written by Goldberg and Guarascio and directed by Shawn Levy, the untitled comedy centers on a thirtysomething bachelorette whose life is turned upside-down when she finally meets the love of her life — a divorced father (Schneider) with three kids. This triggers even more upheaval when the slightly unhinged imaginary friend she created as an only child suddenly reappears in her life to help her navigate the transition from single girl to a woman ready for a family.
Schneider’s Ben is an attractive, adorable and quick-witted divorced dad of three who charmingly seduces the full-time bachelorette into falling in love with him. The imaginary friend was conceived as a CGI creation in a live-action environment. Goldberg, Guarascio, Osborne and Happy Madison’s Doug Robinson executive produce.
Schneider, who has recurred on Comedy Central’s Broad City and FX’s You’re The Worst, has a development deal with Sony TV as a writer. He previously co-wrote and starred in the feature The Funniest Movie Ever.
He is repped by UTA, Mark Schumacher Management and attorney Lev Ginsburg.
