Joshua Carlon (Richie Rich), Steele Stebbins (Vacation) and Amberia Allen (Punk’d) are set as series regulars opposite Bill Bellamy and Becki Newton in Fox’s untitled Chris Case comedy pilot from 20th Century Fox Television.
Written by Case and directed by Malcolm D. Lee, the untitled interracial family comedy (fka My White Wife And Kids) follows Jay “Havoc” Hammond (Bellamy), an African-American ex-NFL lineman who recently moved in with his white wife, Christy (Newton), and her two oddball sons, as he struggles to win the most challenging game of his life: fatherhood.
Carlon will play Colin, Christy’s meek, awkward mama’s boy. Colin has absolutely no game whatsoever. Jay takes him under his wing and tries to teach him self-confidence. Stebbins is Harry, Christy’s 12-going-on-25-year-old son, charming, rap-loving, more confident than motivated, and as much of a ladies’ man as a kid can be at 12. He’s also selfish and disrespects authority, probably because he’s never had any authority to respect. Allen is Angela, Jay’s well-educated, successful and strong-willed sister. She has some very specific points-of-view about Jay’s marriage that she doesn’t necessarily keep to herself.
Carlon was a regular on Richie Rich and was also seen on Modern Family, Sam & Cat, Henry Danger and Bizaardvark. Stebbins is best known for his role in the film Vacation and recurs on Heartbeat and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Carlon and Stebbins are repped by Abrams Artists Agency and Stebbins is managed by Major Minors. Allen is repped by WME and managed by MRH Entertainment.
