Fatrick Zach Cregger
Fox has found its Fatrick.

Zach Cregger (Guys With Kids) has snagged the title role in the network’s buzzy comedy pilot from Don’t Trust The B—-’s Nahnatchka Khan and Corey Nickerson, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The single-camera project — to be directed by Ben and Kate‘s Nat Faxon and Community‘s Jim Rash (aka the Oscar-winning scribes behind The Descendants — follows Cregger’s thirtysomething Patrick, a formerly fat kid who is compelled to face the damage caused by years of being “Fatrick,” with scenes set in both the present day and his school years.

As we previously reported, Desperate Housewives‘ Marcia Cross is set to co-star as Patrick’s mother Arlene, a fit, energetic nutritionist who is rigid and intense when it comes to her family’s eating habits.
