ABC has bought a comedy pitch from writer Spencer Porter (Family Guy, Cartoon Network’s We Bare Bears) and Ryan Reynolds’ UCP-based Dark Trick production banner. Written by Porter, the project is loosely based on Porter’s personal life and relationship with his wife and her family. Jonathon Komack Martin and Blake Goza oversee the comedy for Dark Trick.

Porter started his career as Seth MacFarlane’s assistant before becoming a staff writer on MacFarlane’s Family Guy. He went on to develop projects to ABC Family and Cartoon Network.  He is repped by WME, attorney Lev Ginsburg and Underground’s Josh McGuire.
