Development News - JoAnna Garcia Swisher and Jack Stanton Board FOX's 'Dan the Weatherman' in Recastings

Development News - June 1, 2018

FOX's Dan the Weatherman.

  • The comedy pilot written by Steve Dildarian failed to earn a series pickup before the broadcast upfronts a few weeks ago. But now, the broadcast network has officially ordered reshoots that will recast a few characters. It will be in consideration for the midseason lineup - where FOX currently has no comedies slotted. As such, it's been announced today that JoAnna Garcia Swisher (Reba) and Jack Stanton (The Mick) have joined the new pilot.
  • Garcia Swisher will play Dan's (Thomas Lennon) wife. The role was originally played by Ashley Williams.
  • Stanton will play Dan's son.
