Zane, whose upcoming credits include Love N' Dancing, is repped by Paradigm, Luber Roklin Entertainment and attorney Richard Hume.

The untitled Kohan/Mutchnick comedy, from Warner Bros. TV, centers on two men -- Derek (Josh Cooke), who is straight, and Drew (Alan Tudyk), who is gay -- who are lifelong best friends and business partners. Manji will play Quan, the shy office IT guy.

Manji (Charlie Wilson's War) is repped by DBA and attorneys Joan Silverman and Annette Alvarez.
