Long-time Scrubs star Donald Faison is headed back to the TV world in a new series. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Exes (which is the current working title) is about three divorced men who live together in an apartment across the hall from their divorce attorney. It also stars Wayne Knight, David Alan Basche and Kristen Johnston.
The Exes is one of two sitcoms green-lighted by the bosses at TV Land, a network primarily known for showing reruns. The other series is Happily Divorced, starring Fran Drescher, Tichina Arnold and Rita Moreno. “TV Land is committed to building a new home for situation comedies and we are ecstatic to build and expand on the success of our original scripted programming,” said Larry W. Jones, president of TV Land. “Hot in Cleveland and Retired at 35 have proven to us that our audience is hungry for new sitcoms with relatable, experienced characters and smart, contemporary writing. We’re looking forward to an amazing year working with all of this wonderful talent.”
