Joey McIntyre Books CBS Comedy Pilot
- By Margaret Lyons
New Kid on the Block Joey McIntyre has joined the cast of the single-camera comedy The McCarthys, where he’ll play Jacki Weaver’s son. It’s McIntyre’s first regular TV role since he was on a season of Boston Public in 2003. The McCarthys, written and created by Brian Gallivan (best known as Sassy Gay Friend), is about an Irish Catholic family in Boston and also stars Rescue Me‘s Jack McGee and The Office‘s Jake Lacy. Whelp, off to buy candles to light at the “Give Jordan Knight a TV Show” altar.
