It’s been another very late start to the broadcast network buying season. In one of the higher-profile comedy deals so far, ABC has given a script with penalty commitment to Losing It, a single-camera family comedy from Growing Up Fisher and Truth Be Told creator DJ Nash.
Nash is executive producing the project with Aaron Kaplan from Kapital Entertainment. The comedy is set at ABC sibling ABC Studios. Nash moves to ABC Studios after a five-year stint at Universal TV where he had two back-to-back overall deals and created and executive produced two comedy projects based on personal experiences that went to series, Growing Up Fisher and Truth Be Told.
Written by Nash, Losing It is about three misfit adult siblings and their parents who — between divorce, new parenthood, early-onset dementia and let’s just say life — are all losing it in different ways. And family is the only way they’re going to find it.
Nash, whose series credits also include Up All Night and Bent, is repped by CAA and attorney David Matlof.
At ABC, Kapital Entertainment has new comedy series American Housewife and returning drama series Secrets & Lies, both with ABC Studios.
