ABC's Josep.

  • Rory O'Malley and Mia Katigbak have been cast as series regulars on the comedy pilot starring Jo Koy. O'Malley was nominated for a Tony Award in 2011 for his featured performance in the musical The Book of Mormon. Katigbak previously recurred on USA's The Sinner and ABC's How to Get Away With Murder.
  • O'Malley will play Seth, an earnest guy married to Jo's (Koy) sister, Gemmalyn. He loves his Filipino wife and her family so much he has embraced all parts of their culture and now acts more Filipino than Jo does.
  • Katigbak will play Lorna, Jo's mother, who is a little Filipina force of nature. She loves Jo and spoils him with her homemade Filipino cooking. When he gets out of line, she isn't afraid to whack him with her slippers. She connects Jo to his past and their family history and also provides the love and support he needs in his new life post-divorce.
