ABC has started developing a new sitcom called We'll Be Out By Christmas
The project is based on the family of Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Tom Sherak
It focuses on two parents who allow their daughter to move back in with her three children while her husband is studying for an MBA, which happened to Sherak.
Sherak's wife Madeleine and his son William have signed up to executive produce the project.
The pair have previously collaborated on the movie I Hate Valentine's Day
, while William's other credits include Role Models
and the TV show Are We There Yet?
.We'll Be Out By Christmas
was previously in development as a movie
but the Sheraks allegedly decided it would be better as a television show.
ABC is currently developing a number of new projects, including a drama from Twilight scribe Melissa Rosenberg
, a comedy drama from Easy A director Will Gluck
and a modern-day update of the Jekyll and Hyde story
