Kurt Fuller to appear in new ABC sitcom “Better With You”

Hey Boybanders. Check out the new sneak peek of Kurt Fuller’s (Earl Roberts from BoyBand) new sitcom to air this fall on ABC. We are all hoping it’s a huge success, and we know it will be with veteran actor Kurt Fuller on board. The cast looks good and Kurt plays opposite Debra Jo Rupp, better known as the mom from “That 70s Show”. The mom from that 70s show plus the dad from that 80s movie (BoyBand) sounds like a winning combination!
