Nelson Franklin (Veep) has joined the cast of CBS upcoming comedy series The Millers, which is set to premiere on Thursday September 26th. Franklin has been cast as Adam, Nathan Miller’s brother-in-law. He joins a cast which includes Will Arnett, Beau Bridges, Margo Martindale, JB Smoove, Eve Moon and Jayma Mays.
Created by Greg Garcia, The Millers tells the story of Nathan Miller (Will Arnett), a recently divorced local roving news reporter looking forward to living the singles’ life until his parents’ marital problems unexpectedly derail his plans. After Nathan finally breaks the news of his divorce to his parents, Carol (Martindale) and Tom (Bridges), his father is inspired to follow suit and stuns the family when he leaves his wife of 43 years. Already in shock, Nathan is even more aghast when his meddlesome mom decides to move in with him. Meanwhile, his absent-minded dad imposes upon Nathan’s sister Debbie (Mays), her husband Adam (Franklin) and their daughter Mykayla (Moon). Nathan’s best friend and news cameraman Ray (Smoove) were excited to be Nathan’s wingman in the dating scene, but Carol manages to even cramp his style. Now, as Nathan and his sister settle in with their truly impossible parents, they both wonder just how long the aggravating adjustment period is going to last.
