Dan's pilot of the half-hour comedy Cougartown has been picked up by ABC.
He plays the 17 year old son of the main character, played by Courtney Co, who is the titular 'cougar', a sexually active older woman who dates young men. The show was created by Bill Lawrence and Kevin Beigel who brought us Scrubs. Lawrence also worked on Spin City and Biegel was a consultant on South Park.
The show will form part of ABC's fall schedule for 2009 and will see Dan on primetime network television for the first time since NBC's Heroes.
