Get ready to see The Book of Mormon star Andrew Rannells on the small screen! The actor, who recently appeared on Broadway.com's Side by Side by Susan Blackwell, has signed to star in a new NBC sitcom created by Glee and American Horror Story mastermind Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler, according to Deadline.com. The still-unnamed series will mark Rannells' first major TV gig.
The single-camera sitcom, co-written by Murphy and Adler and directed by Murphy, is described as "a heartwarming comedy about a blended family of a gay couple and the woman who becomes a surrogate to help them start a family."
Rannells received a Tony Award nomination for his work as Elder Price in the smash hit The Book of Mormon. His previous Broadway credits include playing Link Larkin in Hairspray and Bob Gaudio in Jersey Boys. He will make his first on-screen TV appearance as a guest star in the upcoming HBO series Girls.
