Deadline revealed details about the comedy, from Superstore writer-producer Jackie Clarke, director-executive producer Ruben Fleischer and executive producer David Bernad, earlier this week.
Written and executive produced by Clarke, Mail Order Family is loosely based on Clarke’s family. It follows a widowed single father who orders a mail-order bride from the Philippines to help raise his two preteen daughters. Universal TV was the studio.
Mail Order Family was still in the script stage. Two years ago, ABC Family scrapped greenlighted pilot Alice In Arabia after pressure from a Muslim advocacy group, also concerned over stereotyping.
