Jordan L. Jones Lands Lead Role Opposite Lil Rel Howery In Jerrod Carmichael-Produced Fox Comedy Pilot

Comedy News

Fox’s comedy pilot Rel, produced by Jerrod Carmichael, has found its second lead.

Newcomer Jordan L. Jones has joined the cast.

He’ll play the young brother of Lil Rel Howery’s Rel. 

It revolves around a “prideful, self-made success who lives by the code to ‘always believe in yourself and great things will come,’ who finds that attitude put to the test when he learns his wife is having an affair with his own barber. He tries to rebuild his life post-divorce as a long-distance single father on the South Side of Chicago who is on a quest for love, respect and a new barber.” Howery is writing the script and Carmichael is an EP. Mike Scully is the would-be showrunner.

This is Jones’ first series regular role. Deadline says it was a competitive pursuit from networks/studios to land Jones in a role before he went with Rel.
