Enlisted: Geoff Stults Previews New Fox Comedy - ARTICLE

Geoff Stults leads a rag-tag collection of recruits on Fox’s new Friday night comedy, “Enlisted.”

“I had a little disagreement with my commanding officer and, as punishment, I got sent back stateside and put in charge of, I guess, technically, the worst soldiers that the army has,” Geoff explained to Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Monday’s Access Hollywood Live, of his role as SSG Pete Hill in the new show.

“Coincidentally, my two younger brothers are in this unit that I get put in charge of,” Jeff added, referring to CPL Derrick Hill, played by Chris Lowell (“Veronica Mars”) and Randy Hill, played by Parker Young (“Suburgatory”).

The new series premieres on Friday at 9:30/8:30c on Fox, and Geoff said the show is a like a combination of a classic Bill Murray film and a recent NBC sitcom.

“I feel like it’s ‘Stripes’ meets ‘Scrubs’… meets ‘Police Academy,’” he added.
