Written and executive produced by Doyle, the untitled comedy is set in the 1970s and revolves around an Irish-Catholic family with a working-class dad, traditional mom and eight boisterous sons who navigate changes big and small during one of America’s most turbulent decades.
ABC recently had a single-camera comedy series about an Irish-Catholic family, The Real O’Neals, also from ABC Studios, which ran for two seasons.
ABC already has two projects with straight-to-series orders, light cop drama The Rookie starring Nathan Fillion and a family comedy from Alec Baldwin and Kenya Barris. Additionally, a Get Christie Love reboot from Courtney Kemp has a production commitment and is now casting.
