‘Household Name’: Matt Oberg Cast In ABC’s Carol Burnett Comedy Pilot

Matt Oberg

The Real O’Neals’ Matt Oberg has landed a series-regular role opposite Carol Burnett in Household Name, a multi-camera comedy starring Burnett, written/executive produced by Michael Saltzman and executive produced by Amy Poehler through her Paper Kite banner.


Household Name is about a family who gets a chance to buy the house of their dreams but under extremely abnormal circumstances: They must live with the current owner — an eccentric, larger-than-life actress (Burnett) — until she dies.

Oberg will play Tim, a teacher who views life as a never-ending education. He’s a people pleaser, who always tries to do the right thing and make everybody happy, only to find that he can’t.

Oberg plays Vice Principal Murray in The Real O’Neals, recurred as Buddy Calhoun on Veep and starred as Mitch Reed in The Comedians. He’s repped by UTA, Vincent Nastri at Bleecker Street Entertainment and attorney Mitch Smelkinson at SGSBC.

Saltzman executive produces Household Name with Paper Kite’s Poehler and Brooke Posch, 3 Arts’ Dave Becky and the Nacelle Company’s Michael Pelmont.
