Former Joan of Arcadia costar Jason Ritter has enrolled in the CBS comedy pilot The Class.
The action begins with a party thrown by 27-year-old Ethan (Ritter) for his girlfriend, whom he met in third grade. Ethan invites six other people who were in the class with them, all of whom have since lost touch with one another. The party then becomes the springboard for following how the lives of the reunited characters continue to intersect.
Also cast in the pilot is Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who will play one of the schoolmates, a serious man going through a dark period in his life. The two join previously cast Lucy Punch.
Ritter, son of the late John Ritter, most recently was seen in the feature Happy Endings. Ferguson was a cast member of the Broadway musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.
