ABC has given pilot orders to two single-camera projects: Chunk & Bean, written by Ed Herro and Brian Donovan and exec produced by Dave Hemingson, and Square Roots, written exec produced by Vijal Patel. Both hail from ABC sibling ABC Studios.
Chunk & Bean is a dual-family comedy centered on the unlikely friendship of two misfits, Chunk and Bean, who benefit from having two very different sets of parents living next door to each other. First-time developers Herro and Donovan (The Neighbors), who penned the script inspired by their childhood, executive produce alongside Hemingson (Don’t Trust the B).
Square Roots is about a man from a family of logic-driven engineers who is determined to use his “gift” to help the people he loves with their everyday issues. . .whether they like it or not. Patel (Black-ish) is the writer-executive producer.
