John Stamos has lined up two high-profile series gigs. He has been tapped as the male lead of ABC's midseason drama series Members Only. Additionally, Stamos has teamed with ABC Studios-based comedy producer Dan Fogelman (The Neighbors) for a comedy series, which the ER and Full House alum will topline and executive produce. It is shaping up to be a very busy fall for Stamos who also is involved in a Full House reboot in development at Warner Bros. TV. I hear the project is being considered by Netflix.
Members Only, from Susannah Grant, CBS TV Studios and ABC Studios, an upstairs/downstairs drama set at an exclusive Connecticut country club, centered on the club's leisure-class members and the working-class employees that make the place tick. Stamos will play female lead Mickey (Natalie Zea)'s fast-talking hedge-fund billionaire husband whose marriage to Mickey has bought him what his money never could: membership.
The comedy series project, written by Danny Chun (The Office), will have Stamos play a version of himself -- a charismatic lifelong ladies man whose life is upended when he discovers that he has a grown son who is nothing like him. Stamos, Fogelman and Chun are executive producing the comedy, which will be taken out this week, with ABC expected to be particularly aggressive.
