In the pilot, Shalhoub, who is slated to star in the upcoming Broadway revival of Clifford Odets' Golden Boy, will join Chris Smith and Kal Penn.
The upcoming project centers on a young man (Smith) who, after being left at the altar by his fiancée, moves into a short-term housing complex and makes friends with a group of divorced men (Shalhoub and Penn).
Shalhoub was nominated for a Tony Award in 1992 for his performance in Conversations With My Father. He has also been seen on Broadway in Lend Me a Tenor, The Heidi Chronicles and The Odd Couple. He is also known for his work on the television series "Monk," for which he received three Emmy Awards.
