The Eye has been looking to develop a project with Riggle for a while; in 2008 the network signed a talent holding deal with the comedian and last year cast him in a recurring role in its comedy 'Gary Unmarried' opposite Jay Mohr.

In addition to his previous role on 'The Daily Show' (where he broke a lot of boards and fake-punched a lot of interviewees) Riggle has also enjoyed stints on 'Saturday Night Live' and 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien.' Last year, he was spotted on the big screen in blockbuster comedy 'The Hangover' and 'The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard.'
