" ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ creator Phil Rosenthal and ‘Happy Days’ star Henry Winkler have teamed with Winkler’s son, director Max Winkler, and son-in-law, actor Rob Reinis, for a new multicamera family comedy project," reports Nellie Andreeva in an exclusive story at Deadline.com.
The show has a pilot production commitment at ABC, the story notes.
"Written by Rosenthal, Max Winkler and Reinis and to be directed by Rosenthal, the comedy hails from 20th TV and Max Winkler and Jake Johnson’s studio-based Walcott Co," the story reports. "It centers on an emotionally reserved construction worker who learns about love, life and hugs while unexpectedly living with his in-laws — Henry, to be played by Henry Winkler, and Stacey Winkler. (In real life, Henry Winkler has been married to his wife Stacey Winkler for more than 35 years.)
"After coming up with the idea for the project, brothers-in-law Max Winkler and Reinis wanted to team with an A-list showrunner who has experience in family comedy. They reached out to Rosenthal, who responded to the premise and came on board."
