Brenda Song Cast In Fox’s Wellesley Wild/ Alec Sulkin/Seth MacFarlane Comedy Series

EXCLUSIVE: Brenda Song (The Suite Life On Deck) is the first actor cast in the Fox multi-camera comedy series from Ted co-writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild and co-writer/director/star Seth MacFarlane. Written by Sulkin and Wild, the untitled project centers on two successful guys in their 30s who have their lives turned upside down when their nightmare dads unexpectedly move in with them. In the 20th Century Fox TV-produced pilot,┬áSong will play the guys’ assistant who has an odd, entitled sensibility. She co-starred in another 20th TV comedy project last season, pilot Daddy’s Girls. Instead of piloting the Sulkin/Wild project, Fox opted to go straight to series with a six-episode order. Sulkin, Wild and MacFarlane executive produce. Song, repped by UTA and Susan & Cami Curtis, recently recurred on ABC’s Scandal and just started an arc on the Fox/20th TV comedy New Girl.

  • So she’s stuck playing the same airhead entitled character she did in Suite Life. Too bad for her.

  • Who keeps greenlighting these lame shows about family members moving in? As if we need to be reminded that times are tough. Let me guess…the two nightmare Dads are incorrigible horndogs who proceed to make Ms. Song’s character miserable with their dirty old man antics. Was I close?

  • Love her! So I’ll definitely be watching this but I wish she could get a Lead starring role in a comedy series. She has great comedic chops. Very talented and very beautiful. Wish her all the luck in the world!

  • I was hoping she’d return to Scandal, so happy she’ll be on elsewhere! She’s great…
