The actor selected this particular pilot from “a dozen or so offers.”

Here’s a plot summary for the still-untitled comedy: Peter (Wayans) and Claire, a thirtysomething couple who are tired of their mundane life and start to reconnect with their younger, cooler selves when an emerging pop star, who is drawn to their super-normal suburban life, moves in. Wayans’ Peter is a good guy with a sense of humor, happily married to his dream wife, Claire. He is an accountant and business manager for Cooper, the young superstar musician who comes to live with them.

This is the first broadcast pilot Damon has signed onto since New Girl in 2011.

Damon Wayans Jr. Leaving 'New Girl' at End of This Season

Damon Wayans Jr. has announced that he will leave New Girl at the end of the current fourth season.

“I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to come back to New Girl in Season 3 to reprise the role of Coach,” the 32-year-old actor told TVLine in a statement. “Working with this incredibly talented and funny cast and crew has been one of the best experiences of my career.”

In case you don’t remember, Damon actually appeared in the New Girl pilot, but wasn’t able to continue with the series due to his commitment with ABC’s Happy Endings. He ended up making a special guest appearance in season three and then became a series regular for season four.

“We love Damon and are so lucky to have had him return for the past season-and-a-half,” New Girl executive producer Liz Meriwether added. “We are working on crafting an exit for him that will leave the door open for many more returns, especially since Coach is our resolution to the upcoming ‘Who’s Jess’ Baby Daddy?’ storyline.”
