Rhys Darby's comedy pilot picked up in the US

Rhys Darby has landed a primetime slot on US network CBS with new pilot How To Be A Gentleman getting picked up this week.

Darby plays a supporting role in the comedy, which centres on a refined newspaper columnist and his unrefined personal trainer.

The former Flight of the Conchords actor will play the brother-in-law of the lead character on the show, which has been given a primetime slot on the network in between The Big Bang Theory and new J.J. Abrams series Person of Interest.

Darby will be joined in the series by David Hornsby, Entourages’s Kevin Dillon and 24’s Mary Lynn Rajskub.

Darby said yesterday that he was excited about working on the show.

“It’s such a great premise and the cast are amazing. I’m very much looking forward to working with them.”

Darby is also working on a new UK sitcom.
