ABC Orders a Family Comedy from Kenya Barris, Julie Bean, and Alec Baldwin

barrisABC just handed out a straight-to-series order to a new comedy from Black-ish creator Kenya Barris and Julie Bean with Alec Baldwin attached to potentially star. According to Deadline, the multi-cam series is written by Barris and Bean and centers on “a stuck-in-his-ways, opinionated, fading TV star who moves in with his progressive daughter, her girlfriend and the child they are raising together.” Barris and Bean – who is also the executive producer on the upcoming Black-ish spin-off Grown-ish – will serve as showrunners on the untitled series, which is expected to debut sometime during the 2018-2019 season.
