ABC is throwing an “Arrested Development” reunion on the pilot level.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jeffrey Tambor is joining the cast of “The Bridget Show,” the network’s Lauren Graham comedy pilot.

“Arrested Development” creator Mitchell Hurwitz is an executive producer on the show, reteaming now with “Arrested Development” Emmy nominee Tambor.

Graham stars as a talk show and relationship expert who discovers that her own advice doesn’t work when the man she loves dumps her. Tambor will play the main character’s business manager, which will give him something to do while beating the bushes for the “Arrested Development” movie.

Also at ABC, Matthew Davis is taking a lead role in “Limelight,” about students and teachers at a New York performing-arts academy.

Davis, who starred in “What About Brian” for ABC, will play the school’s interim artistic director.

Finally, Majandra Delfino (“Roswell”) is joining Lindsay Sloane, Mary Elizabeth Ellis in the comedy “Pulling,” about a trio of thirtysomething single friends.
