Pilot season just keeps getting better and better! Case in point: Dax Shepard is returning to TV, and we’re major fans of his new project.
Since Parenthood wrapped in 2015, Shepard has popped up on a few different series over the past few years, including Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, in addition to voicing a few characters on shows like Robot Chicken, but a new comedy pilot for Fox could bring the actor back to TV on a more regular basis.
Bless This Mess revolves around a newlywed couple living in New York City who decide to move to Nebraska for a simpler life, only to discover that it’s not exactly what they had in mind. Shepard with be playing Mike, the husband on the show, while Lake Bell, who is also a co-creator with Meriwether, will be playing his on-screen wife, Rio.
While the title of the comedy pilot implies that these two newlywed’s lives are a mess, but blessed, with so much star power and talent backing up the show, we have a feeling it’s going to be a winner.
