Albert Tsai is moving from one family sitcom to another. Deadline reports the Dr. Ken star will be a series regular on CBS’ upcoming TV show 9JKL.
The multi-cam sitcom is “inspired by a time in Mark Feuerstein’s adult life when he lived in apartment 9K in the building he grew up in, sandwiched between his doting parents’ apartment, 9J, and his brother, sister-in-law and their baby’s apartment, 9L, and his attempts to set boundaries with his intrusive but well-meaning family.” The cast includes Feuerstein, Linda Lavin, Elliott Gould, David Walton, Liza Lapira, and Matt Murray.
On 9JKL, Tsai will play “Ian, a precocious cinephile who is unimpressed with Josh’s (Feuerstein) TV career.” The new comedy is set to premiere on CBS on October 2nd at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT.
