JOEY MCINTYRE, THIS IS YOUR LIFE (NO, BUT REALLY... )

PRODUCTION UNDER WAY ON POP'S SCRIPTED COMEDY SERIES FROM CBS TELEVISION STUDIOS: "THE JOEY MAC PROJECT," STARRING JOEY MCINTYRE AS HIMSELF ALONGSIDE HIS REAL WIFE AND KIDS

Network Announces Its Cast for the Eight-Episode Pop Original Series

LOS ANGELES - Oct. 19, 2016 - Boy band heartthrob and all-around performer Joey McIntyre is in the spotlight again, as Pop, T Group Productions and partner CBS Television Studios have begun production in Los Angeles on the upcoming eight-episode scripted television comedy series, THE JOEY MAC PROJECT. The series is executive produced by Donnie Wahlberg, Jenny McCarthy and Joey McIntyre, along with Tim Gibbons ("Curb Your Enthusiasm"), Paul Greenberg ("Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris") and Jenny Daly ("Storage Hunters").

THE JOEY MAC PROJECT stars Joey as himself in a hilarious quest to be taken seriously as a legit actor that eventually lands him a gig as a talk show host at a cable network called The Comfy Channel. As Joey starts to navigate the talk show circuit, he is joined by his often misguided manager and team played by a hysterical cast, including Adam Ray, Jamie Denbo, Katie Wee, Punam Patel and Jordan Black. Joey's real-life family members will also star in the show as themselves, including his wife Barrett and their three children, Griffin (eight years old), Rhys (six years old) and Kira (five years old).

THE JOEY MAC PROJECT cast members will include:

Adam Ray ("Mad TV," "The Heat," "Workaholics," "Ghostbusters," About Last Night Podcast) plays Alex, Joey's longtime manager and confidant whose poor impulse control and short-term ideas have led to a successful codependent relationship with Joey, who is always looking for the next job.

Comedy veteran Jamie Denbo ("Orange Is the New Black," "Yes Man," "Spy") has been cast as Sam Kandor, a former broadcast network president, who after an epic breakdown has adopted a more balanced lifestyle full of incense, yoga and a new gig at The Comfy Channel.

Katie Wee ("New Girl," "Rules of Engagement," "The Client List") is playing Paige Kwan, the perky, ultra-driven VP of Development at The Comfy Channel who often oversteps when it comes to the production of Joey's show.

Punam Patel ("Kevin from Work," "Toast") has been cast as Soozie, the long-suffering assistant to Sam and overly obsessive fan of New Kids on the Block.

Jordan Black ("Community," "The Mindy Project," "How I Met Your Mother") plays Malcolm, a joyless executive at The Comfy Channel who keeps a tight watch over the show and Sam's over-the-top ideas.

THE JOEY MAC PROJECT is scheduled to premiere on Pop in 2017. The series is produced by T Group Productions and executive produced by Donnie Wahlberg, Jenny McCarthy, Joey McIntyre, Jenny Daly, Paul Greenberg and Tim Gibbons.
