On the heels of the premiere of Red Band Society, based on the praised Spanish drama, Fox has put in development another adaptation of a successful Spanish series, multi-camera comedy Los Serrano. The single-camera Fox version will be written by The Simpsons veteran Mike Scully and his wife, former Simpsons writer-producer Julie Scully. 20th TV, where Mike Scully has been based for more than two decades, is producing.
Created by Daniel Écija Bernal and produced by Globomedia and Mediaset, Los Serrano premiered on Telecinco in 2003 and ran for five years and 147 episodes. Echoing The Brady Bunch, it is about a widower with three sons who reconnects and marries his high school sweetheart, a divorced mother of two girls. The series, which already has been adapted in nine other countries, chronicles the exploits of the blended family, with its seven members adjusting to living under the same roof. Here is a detailed trailer in English:
The Scullys will executive produce with Bernal and Laura Fernández Espeso through Globomedia as well as Jaume Collet-Serra and Juan Sola through Ombra. Mike and Julie Scully, who most recently worked on the Fox comedy Dads, are with UTA; Globomedia is repped by CAA and attorney Jeff Finkelstein; Ombra is with CAA and attorney Gretchen Rushat of Hansen Jacobson.
