Savage will direct an episode written by Stephen Lloyd entitled, "The King and I." In the episode, Oliver's (Grant Rosenmeyer) experiments with a microscope turn him into a hypochondriac while Ted (Andrew Lawrence) dates the daughter of a sporting goods store owner to get the new baseball glove he didn't get for his birthday.
Already a 20-year veteran of the entertainment industry, Savage began a six-year run as Kevin Arnold in 1988 on "The Wonder Years," which focused on a boy growing up in the 1960s and '70s.
"Oliver Beene" is a half-hour comedy series revolving around 11-year-old Oliver Beene, who faces the trials and tribulations of growing up during the Kennedy-era '60s.
The series' season premier date has not yet been announced.
