EXCLUSIVE: I’ve learned that Michael Boatman is set to co-star opposite Tia Mowry in the Nick at Nite family comedy pilot Instant Mom. Boatman replaces Duane Martin who was originally cast in the role. The recasting decision was made after today’s table read. Written by Warren Bell and Jessica Butler loosely based on their real life, Instant Mom centers on a 25-year-old party girl (Mowry) who trades in cosmos for carpools when she marries successful doctor Charlie (Boatman), an older man with kids. Bell, Butler and Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment executive produce. Spin City alum Boatman, repped by Innovative and managed by Sanders/Armstrong/Caserta, recently recurred on CBS’ The Good Wife and FX’s Anger Management.
