Jim Belushi to Play Taran Killam’s Dad in Showtime Pilot ‘Mating’

Former SNL cast member Taran Killam has a Showtime comedy pilot in the works called Mating, and the project just added another SNL alum to the cast. According to Deadline, Jim Belushi will also star in the pilot, which centers on Killam as Jay, “a recently divorced guy who married young and now finds himself completely unprepared for the brave new, frank and fluid world of dating and hooking up.” Belushi will play Paul, Jay’s “father and business partner.” Written by The Americans’ Stu Zicherman, the anthology series was ordered to pilot in February and will feature a different protagonist every season. Elsewhere at Showtime, Jay Pharoah also has a pilot in the works produced by Jamie Foxx called White Famous.
