Seth Rogen along with Evan Goldberg, and Will Reiser are hoping to bring some laughs over to ABC. Today it was revealed that Rogen and team are planning to produce a comedy based on an unlikely-family. This isn’t the first time these men previously worked together, they all got together back in 2011 for the dramedy, 50/50 . For Rogen, he’s attached to the ABC project to serve as an executive producer.

The network has ordered a script with a penalty attached for the project, which follows Steve Strunsky, a 30-year-old liberal and perpetual bachelor from Berkeley. Steve has just moved to a small blue collar town in western Pennsylvania in order to be with his one true love, Grace Fitzgerald. Along with Grace’s father, a reactionary conservative, and her precocious, war obsessed 8-year-old, this colorful family is learning day by day how to build a life together despite their differences. Reiser created the project and will serve as writer and executive producer. Rogen and Goldberg will executive produce under their Point Grey Pictures Banner, along with Point Grey’s James Weaver.
