Late last year, we reported John Leguizamo had a single-camera comedy pilot picked up by ABC. Now the project has been redone with a multi-camera format and has gotten the greenlight from ABC.
The half-hour project is loosely based on the comedian’s life as a father feeling out of place in New York’s Upper West Side after coming from a less-than-spoiled life in the Bronx. His mother and grandfather keep him grounded in his Latin roots, as he worries his kids are becoming spoiled like their mother.
Leguizamo will take on a number of duties for the project including, playing the lead, co-writing, and co-producing.
The pilot was co-written with Family Guy executive producer and co-showrunner, Chris Sheridan.
