Kyle Bornheimer – last seen in Romantically Challenged, Perfect Couples and Worst Week – will join the cast of the ABC comedy pilot White Man Van.
The single-camera project from Bobby Bowman is based on the British format White Van Man, and centers on a man who is forced to put his dreams on hold in order to take over the family handyman business from his father.
White Man Van is one of eight new comedies in development for ABC’s fall 2012 lineup. If you don’t like the sound of that one, check out these others:
