In a competitive situation, a half-hour project from actor-writer Jay Baruchel has landed at ABC with a significant penalty and pre-negotiated license fees. Baruchel will co-write the 20th Century Fox TV/Tagline comedy with his writing partner Jesse Chabot. The semi-autobiographical project centers on a successful actor who eschews the fame and superficiality of Hollywood to move back home to Burlington, VT where he buys a house down the street from his mom and invites his two best friends from childhood to move in with him. CAA-repped Baruchel and Chabot will executive produce with their managers, Willie Mercer and Marc Hamou of Thruline. Baruchel is not attached to star.
