"Welcome to the Captain" is a CBS comedy about a wildly eclectic group of people whose lives are intertwined through the place they all call home, a fabled Hollywood apartment building, El Capitan, which they've dubbed "The Captain." Josh (Fran Kranz, "The TV Set"), is a Hollywood whiz kid whose filmmaking career has hit a wall. Just when Josh is about to move back to New York, his accountant-to-the-stars best friend, Marty (Chris Klein, "American Pie"), convinces him to move into his legendary apartment building. Among the eccentric tenants are Uncle Saul (Emmy Award nominee Jeffrey Tambor, "Arrested Development"), a former "Three's Company" writer who is the building's self-proclaimed expert on anything and everything; Charlene (Golden Globe Award winner Raquel Welch, "The Three Musketeers"), the femme fatale who welcomes Josh in her own seductive style; Jesus (comedian Al Madrigal), a gossipy doorman who knows all the residents' most tantalizing secrets, and Astrid (Valerie Azlynn, "Two and a Half Men") a flighty, aspiring young actress. Josh is most taken with the earthy, beautiful Hope, (Joanna Garcia, "Reba"), an aspiring acupuncturist who enlists him as a practice patient. The folklore of this fabled apartment building always continues to grow and, as each dweller quickly learns, the walls never stop talking.

The "Welcome to the Captain" cast includes Chris Klein as Marty Tanner, Fran Kranz as Josh Flug, Jeffrey Tambor as Uncle Saul, Joanna Garcia as Hope, Raquel Welch as Charlene Van Ark, Valerie Azlynn as Astrid, and Al Madrigal as Jesus.
