Alec Baldwin and Kelsey Grammer’s comedy will not be moving forward at ABC and is being shopped elsewhere. The straight-to-series order, which also had Alec Mapa (“Ugly Betty,” “Doom Patrol”) attached to star, was scrapped after network executives saw the completed pilot episode.
Per the logline, the untitled multi-camera series revolves around three men (Baldwin, Grammer and Mapa) who were roommates in their 20s until their warring egos drove them apart. Now, the trio is reuniting decades later for one more run at the lives they’ve always wanted.
20th Television is the studio behind the project, which hails from “Modern Family” co-creator Chris Lloyd and executive producer Vali Chandrasekaran. The pair will serve as writers and executive producers alongside Baldwin and Grammer. The pilot was directed by James Burrows.
More to come.
