Seann William Scott has been tapped to star in Fox’s single-camera comedy pilot This Country, based on the BBC series, from Jenny Bicks, Paul Feig’s Feigco Entertainment, Lionsgate, Fox Entertainment and BBC Studios.

Scott plays Father Joe., a recent transplant from Minneapolis who is doing the best he can with what he’s got.

He tries really hard to remain calm, and although these two often test his patience, he is resolved to stay an optimist and a role model.
