The actor is set to star in the CBS relationship comedy pilot Good Session, TVGuide.com has learned.
In the half-hour, single-camera comedy, a happy couple decides to see a therapist to help them figure out whether they should have a baby, but the two soon discover they have more to talk about. And so begins the painful (but hilarious) journey into couples counseling.
Roday will play Joel, a dedicated middle-school guidance counselor who thinks his marriage to jet-setting executive Lindsay is happy, that is, until he spends time on the couch.
Mad Men's Rich Sommer, also coming off of a long-running series, plays Joel's best friend in the project, which is written by Matt Miller (666 Park Avenue). He will executive-producer with I Love You, Man's John Hamburg, who is directing the pilot.
Psych's series finale airs Wednesday, March 26 at 9/8c on USA. What do you think of Roday's new gig?
