The beloved Book of Mormon star has signed on to co-headline The Comedians with Billy Crystal, starring on the upcoming sitcom as a young comic on the rise who resents his pairing with Crystal's aging star on a late-night sketch show.
Gad also will also serve as a producer on the program, which comes from writers/executive producers Crystal, Larry Charles, Matt Nix and Ben Wexler.
Gad is best known for his role in the aforementioned Tony-winning musical, along with his role last year on NBC's short-lived 1600 Penn. He will next be seen as Steve Wozniak in Jobs.
