Denis Leary has scored a leading role in the single-cam comedy event series “A Moody Christmas” at FOX.
The story follows Dan Moody who returns home to Chicago to spend Christmas with his dysfunctional family. When he arrives, he is met with the inevitable madness of a family whose members are all hiding things from each other. Leary will play Sean Sr., the patriarch of the Moody family.
The role is Leary’s first in a broadcast series in nearly two decades following ABC’s “The Job,” though Leary’s best-known work to date remains FX’s dramedy series “Rescue Me”. “A Noody Christmas” will run for six half-hour episodes.
Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg, and Tad Quill will write and executive produce. Trent O’Donnell, Phil Lloyd, Jason Burrows, Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannembaum will executive produce.
