Will & Grace star Eric McCormack’s biggest attempt to return to primetime television (aside from Lovespring International, which he produced and cameo’d in) was with Trust Me, a mostly flat attempt at spinning Mad Men ad industry sex appeal with the formulaic appeal of Psych. It didn’t work too well; Trust Me‘s ratings aren’t impressive, and the show isn’t expected to be picked up for a second season. (Such is the life of many shows that star Tom Cavanaugh. See: Love Monkey, Ed.) But McCormack is ready to roar again: He’s just signed on to an untitled ABC comedy pilot from writer-producer Tad Quill, playing married “heart surgeon with a new baby” Dean.
