Fox’s Outmatched is serving up some American Pie: The freshman comedy, which stars Jason Biggs, will host a mini-reunion of the seminal movie when Alyson Hannigan and Eddie Kaye Thomas appear on the series, EW.com reports.
Outmatched features Biggs and Maggie Lawson as Mike and Kay, the parents of four children, three of whom are geniuses. Hannigan and Kaye Thomas will play the helicopter parents of another gifted child, whom Mike and Kay becomes friends with — until their kids decide Mike and Kay are a bad influence on the other couple. The episode is slated to air in March.
