Here is your weekly reminder to watch "Enlisted," Fox's funniest sitcom of the season: Star Angelique Cabral, who plays Geoff Stults' nemesis/frenemy/flirt buddy on the comedy, has booked a lead role in a new NBC comedy pilot.
According to Deadline, Cabral will star in "Two To Go," a comedy about longtime best friends Kurt and Laura (Christine Woods), who struggle with "the challenges of modern-day dating" while their group of friends insist they should be together. Cabral will play Anne, the Pilates instructor wife to Echo Kellum's stay-at-home dad Nick.

TV show description:
In this sitcom, Sean (Sean Hayes) is a divorced dad who's trying to juggle his career and family life. From his overbearing boss and offbeat employees at work, to his pushy mom and weekends with his teenage daughter Ellie (Samantha Isler), handling it all is no easy task.
When his quick-witted 14-year-old daughter wants to move in full-time, life gets even more complicated. Never one to do anything halfway, Sean's intent on being the best dad ever. He loads up on parenting how-to books and plans topic-filled family dinners.

The network had initially ordered 13 episodes and then gave the show a five episode back-order. A baker's dozen have aired and EW reports that two others have been produced.

The series stars Hayes as a single gay father who struggles to balance his responsibilities to his daughter and mother at home with his demanding job. The rest of the cast includes Megan Hilty, Echo Kellum, Samantha Isler, Thomas Lennon, and Linda Lavin. »
