ABC has put in development How To Be An Adult, a comedy from writer and Groundlings, Second City and UCB alum Nick Kreiss and Sony TV. Inspired by Kreiss’ life, the hybrid workplace comedy is about a man-child tasked with saving his family business alongside his Dad’s comically awful widow.

Kopelman is repped by UTA and attorney Jared Levine; Maniscalco is repped by UTA, Levity Management and attorney Gregg Gelman.
