Scott Michael Foster & Matt Shively Book Pilots 'Boom' & 'Family Of the Year'

Congrats to Scott Michael Foster and Matt Shively!

It was just announced (via Deadline) that Scott, 29, has booked a starring role in ABC drama pilot, Boom.

Written by Josh Pate and Rodes Fishburne and produced by ABC Studios, Boom examines the biggest oil discovery in American history — bigger than Texas and as big as Saudi Arabia — which has triggered a geopolitical shift and an economic boom in North Dakota on a scale not seen since the 1849 California Gold Rush.

Meanwhile, Matt will star alongside Bebe Wood in Family Of The Year. The single-camera project is about a picture perfect family, the O’Neals, that is turned upside down when the youngest son Danny comes out of the closet.

He’ll play Jimmy O’Neal, Danny’s older brother, a two-time all-state wrestling champion, while Bebe is Shannon, the little sister, a real do-gooder who’s always working on some new charity.
