It looks like Jo Koy has found the actor to play his son in the upcoming ABC pilot sitcom, Josep. Deadline announced that Fil-Am actor Kaden Alejandro will be playing Miles, the son of Jo and Cheryl.

Miles is the most adjusted in the family with his parent's divorce. Unfortunately, he doesn't have much interest in knowing about his Filipino culture. He's grown accustomed to the Americanized lifestyle like preferring orange chicken to Filipino food, but Lola Lorna played by Mia Katigbak is ready to become a strong Filipino presence.

The young actor, Kaden Alejandro has also been on other sitcoms like Fox’s 9-1-1: Lone Star, ABC’s The Rookie and Peacock’s Bel-Air. We can't wait to see his character and its development soon. We also can all agree that he has the hair for the role!

Also joining Kaden Alejandro are Kimee BalmileroTess Paras and Jason Rogel who are the latest additions to the series. They'll be playing Geraldine (Balmilero), Cheryl (Paras), and Will Lee (Rogel) as series regulars appearing alongside previously announced cast members.

Geraldine (Balmilero) or Geri is Jo's sister who runs a Filipino restaurant with her American husband who soaks up the Filipino culture. She's a go-getter with hipster glasses, pink highlights, and bright personality. There's a little of a sibling rivalry between Geri and Jo for mother's favorite child.

Cheryl (Paras) is Jo’s ex-wife, the mother of their son, Miles (Alejandro), and a goal oriented attorney. She looks to stay friends with Jo and is adjusting fairly well back into the single life than her ex-husband.

Will Lee (Rogel) is Jo's BFF since high school and a pharmacist with a playful smile. He sees social events as an opportunity to find "the one."

"The ABC half-hour sitcom... follows the life of a hardworking Filipino-American nurse. Josep will also see its titular character navigating dating, fatherhood, and his mother moving in with him."

Besides Josep, Jo Koy is releasing the film Easter Sunday in August and filming his next Netflix special 3/25 at The Forum in Los Angeles.

It's official, a pilot episode has been ordered by ABC Network for Josep. Filming started last spring and it looks like it shouldn't be long until we can catch the single-cam series on TV. Jo Koy takes the lead role in Josep as a recently divorced Fil-Am nurse who's navigating his personal and family life with a very Filipino mother who loves to “help.” One thing's for sure, we'll be seeing a Fil-Am family on-screen!

Deadline mentions, "The ABC half-hour sitcom... follows the life of a hardworking Filipino-American nurse. Written and executive produced by showrunner Steve Joe, Josep will also see its titular character navigating dating, fatherhood, and his mother moving in with him." Relatable is an understatement for most of the Filipino community.

The half-hour comedy from 20th Television, is also written and executive produced by Michael Golamco and Randall Park for their production company Imminent Collision, along with executive producer Hieu Ho. Joe Meloche is executive producing as well as Jake Kasdan and Melvin Mar for Kasdan’s production company The Detective Agency.
