Joey Bragg & Austin Crute Team Up for New Comedy Series 'My Village'

Joey Bragg and Austin Crute are joining forces for a new show!

The Liv and Maddie actor and the Daybreak actor will star in the upcoming ABC comedy series My Village, Deadline reports.

Joey and Austin – along with Rachel Sennott and Emma Caymares – have been cast as series regulars opposite Kyra Sedgwick.

Pam Fryman will direct the pilot for the multi-camera comedy.

My Village follows “an empty-nester mom, Jean Raines (Sedgwick), who wonders how she ended up alone while her children live their best lives thousands of miles away. She decides her place is with her family and as she reinserts herself into their lives, her kids realize they might actually need her more than they thought.”

Joey will play Freddie, “Jean’s baby. He’s handsome, earnest, bright and sensitive. He’s a successful video game developer, has a beautiful girlfriend, a great apartment… he’s also deeply connected to his mother. One look from her can unravel his usual confident exterior and turn him back into the sensitive seventh grade boy his mom still thinks of him as who failed Spanish three times.”

Austin Crute will portray Lane, “Jackie’s (Sennott) roommate. Also from the Midwest. His parents stopped talking to him when he came out. Lane is thrilled to have Jean around as a surrogate mother-figure. He’s a deeply loyal friend to Jackie. He’s not quite figured out the LA gay scene and will gladly accept Jean’s wisdom and home cooking.”
