He'll join the previously cast Megan Mullally and Cheryl Hines in the ABC Studios-based project, which comes from Jennifer Konner and Alexandra Rushfield. Chelsea Handler, who co-starred in the original incarnation along with Leah Remini and Jenny McCarthy, had been in talks to reprise her role however a deal could not be reached due to her commitments to her talk show on E!. As for Sanz, he'll play Horatio, a stay-at-home dad/unemployed father doing his best to raise his daughter after the mother - the daughter of Mullally's character - left them.


POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS (Showtime) - Jason London ("Wildfire") has joined the cast of the drama pilot, about a family run pharmaceutical company.
