Justin Long To Topline ABC Comedy Pilot ‘Dream Team’

Justin Long is set as the lead in Dream Team, ABC’s single-camera half-hour from comedy writers Kari Lizer and Bill Wrubel, and Warner Bros. TV.

Written/executive produced by Lizer and Wrubel, Dream Team centers on Marty Schumacher (Long). Recently divorced, Marty is the eternally optimistic manager of a sporting goods store and also the “damn good” head coach of a nationally ranked soccer program — the one true love in his life. Currently recruiting young girls for his dream team, Marty is looking to recreate his amazing rise to the national championships of two years ago.

On Dream Team, Long joins recently cast Michael Mosley, Lindsey Kraft and Michelle Buteau.

Long voices Alvin in the Alvin and the Chipmunks animated feature franchise. On TV, he did arcs on New Girl and Mom and is a voice cast member of Netflix’s animated comedy series F is for Family. He’s repped by Gersh.
