Aramis Knight Joins "Welcome To The Family"

Bean actor Aramis Knight has signed up to co-star in Welcome To The Family, a single-camera comedy pilot for NBC.

The pilot is written by Mike Sikowitz (Rules of Engagement) for Sony Pictures Television and "chronicles how cultures collide when a white family and a Latino family are bonded together by their children who fall in love followed quickly by an unplanned pregnancy." (Hollywood Reporter)

Mike O'Malley, best known for his role as Kurt's (Chris Colfer) father Burt Hummel on Fox's Glee, will play Dan Yoder, an orthodontist, loving husband to Katrina, and father to a teenage daughter, Molly. Katrina will be portrayed by Mary McCormack, star of USA Networks' In Plain Sight, and Ella Rae Peck, known from Gossip Girl as Lola, has been casted as Molly.

Joseph Haro, another Glee alumni (one of the Warblers), will play Molly's boyfriend Junior Hernandez, and Aramis Knight is set to portray his younger brother Demetrio. Their parents will be Ricardo Chavira, who starred as Carlos Solis in Desperate Housewives, and Justina Machado, who can be seen in the current season of Private Practice.

With Sinkowitz as an experienced showrunner and a fabulous, experienced cast, this project could really take off.

Congratulations, Aramis!
