Jake McDorman Is Joining the Cast of the 'Murphy Brown' Reboot!

Jake McDorman will join the cast of Murphy Brown!

The Limitless star will appear in the upcoming CBS 13-episode series revival of the classic comedy upon its 30th anniversary, Variety confirms.

Atypical star Nik Dodani will also be joining the cast.

Jake will play Avery, Murphy’s millennial journalist son who is following in his mother’s footsteps, perhaps too closely, and has his mother’s competitive spirit and quick wit. Nik will play Pat, the director of social media for the news show who is tasked with bringing Murphy and the gang into the 21st century.

Original cast members Candice Bergen, Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto and Grant Shaud will reprise their roles.
