Outsourced star Ben Rappaport is set as the lead of another workplace comedy, TBS pilot Do It Yourself. Bill Engvall is co-starring in the multi-camera project written by Walt Becker and Rob Long and directed by James Widdoes. Do It Yourself tells the story of Nick Porter (Rappaport), a 20-something laid-off math teacher who finds himself thrust into the blue collar world when he gets a job at that most American of retail institutions: the big box home supply store. Engvall plays his co-worker Dale, an executive with 30 years of experience who was once a senior vice president at Circuit City but has been reduced to minimum wage since his company went belly-up. The two join previously cast Melora Hardin and Ryan McPartlin.
