ABC Buys a Family Sitcom Starring Rory Scovel and Created by an ‘Always Sunny’ Writer

Standup fans know Rory Scovel has been one of the funniest comedians going these past few years, and now, ABC is hiring him to star in a new show. Deadline reports that ABC is developing a multi-camera comedy called Big Children that stars Scovel as a 30-year-old only child who returns home to parent his parents after they’ve retired and begun acting like children. The show is being written by Scott Marder, a longtime writer/producer for FX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Scovel and Marder seem like a natural pair, and they should make for one great, weird Disney-owned multicamera family sitcom. For those unfamiliar with Rory Scovel, hit the jump to watch him do standup in a hotel lobby!
