Keenen Ivory Wayans Project Lands at ABC THR
ABC has bought a comedy project from Keenen Ivory Wayans in what The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed calls a "competitive situation."
The project, which received an order for a pilot script with a significant penalty, is about "the whitest guy in America," who marries into a large African-American family, the story says.
Wayans will write and executive produce the project, although he isn't slated to star. The project is produced by 20th Century Fox TV and Chernin Entertainment, with Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope also executive producing.
