You’ve heard, “If you build it, they will come.” Well, if you make ‘em laugh, they will hire you. Case in point, comedian Rob Riggle has been making the rounds in various guest roles and his popularity has just won him the starring role in the new Fox pilot, The Gabriels.
You saw him on the big screen in 21 Jump Street. He’s done recent guest work on New Girl and The Cleveland Show. Now the Fox network has plans to put Riggle to work full-time. THR had the inside scoop of the new comedy pilot, The Gabriels.
The pilot centers around a quiet, “introverted, neurotic Wisconsin family that lives in a community of over-sharers.” Riggle will star as Ken Gabriel, “a childlike man with devilish energy.” I’ve got to say, this premise has me scratching my head.
