Neil Flynn Going Back To NBC

Deadline reports that Neil Flynn, star of The Middle, is heading back to NBC to star in a lead role opposite Natalie Morales in the NBC comedy pilot, Abby’s, after he wraps his nine year tenure at ABC.

Flynn played The Janitor on NBC’s Scrubs for 7 seasons,  “Mike Heck” on ABC’s The Middle for 9 seasons, and will now play “Fred” in NBC’s  Abby’s, which is about an unlicensed bar in San Diego where the regulars enthusiastically enforce a unique set of rules that give them a sense of community and allow them to avoid the frustrating behavior found at other establishments.

We are very happy and proud of Neil and can’t wait to see him on Abby’s!
