John Leguizamo pilot picked up by ABC

Date February 05, 2013

NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) - ABC has picked up a pilot for an untitled John Leguizamo half-hour comedy, the network announced.

Co-created by and starring Leguizamo, it is executive produced by David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and Jeff Golenberg. It comes from ABC Studios and Mandeville.

The pilot is based on the Broadway and film actor's life as a husband and father who feels like a fish out of water on Manhattan's Upper West Side. He balances a privileged wife, friends from back home in the Bronx, and a mother and grandfather "who try to keep him grounded in his Latin roots," according to ABC. He also worries that his kids are becoming spoiled.

The "Ice Age" actor has starred in a series of one-man shows that aired on HBO, including "Mambo Mouth," "Spic-O-Rama," "Freak," and "Sexaholix."
