Nasim Pedrad to Star in Fox Comedy Pilot ‘Chad: An American Boy’

nasim_pedradNasim Pedrad has a very interesting new TV role in the works. According to Variety, the SNL alum has signed on to star in a Fox pilot called Chad: An American Boy as “a young teenage boy in the throes of adolescence who is tasked with being the man of the house, which leaves him with all the responsibilities of being an adult without any of the perks.” Pedrad also co-wrote the script with Rob Rosell. “I’m thrilled to be able to portray a Middle Eastern family not working for or against Jack Bauer on network TV,” she said on the news. “Also, a big thank you to Fox for understanding that my true essence is that of an awkward and misguided 14-year-old boy.”
