The Simpsons veteran Mike Scully and his wife, former Simpsons writer/producer Julie Scully, have sold multi-camera comedy project Raising Adults to ABC. It hails from 20th Century Fox TV where Mike Scully is under an overall deal. Raising Adults, based on a spec script that the duo wrote, is loosely based on the Scullys’ own experiences guiding their five adult kids toward independence, which they call “a job with no current end in sight.” The comedy centers on a married couple who, over the course of 20 years of parenting three children, have gone from saying “They grow up so fast” to wondering “Will they ever grow up?” The Scullys are writing and executive producing.
This is the couple’s second sale this season, joining a single-camera comedy at Fox based on the successful Spanish series Los Serrano. The Scullys are repped at UTA.
