Gabrielle Union has landed a role in Fox’s pilot Little In Common. The comedy focuses on three families whose children play little league sports together. Rob Corddry and Paula Marshall will star as members of the Weller family, who move from California to Austin. They discover that their Latino neighbours, the Pachecos, raise their children very differently and also find out that their new African-American acquaintances, the Burlesons, take sport extremely seriously.
According to Deadline, Union has now signed up to play Nicole, the matriarch of the Burleson family. She is said to be a lobbyist who is determined to succeed. Union will star alongside Kevin Hart, who was recently cast as Ty Burleson. She has previously worked on shows including FlashForward, Life and Ugly Betty.
