Fox is moving forward with a new comedy built around one of the stars of “Full House.” Variety reports that the network made a put pilot order for an untitled project featuring John Stamos.
Stamos will play “a longtime bachelor whose life is upended when he discovers he’s a father and a grandfather,” the story reports. “Danny Chun, an alum of ‘The Office,’ is penning the script and exec producing with Dan Fogelman (‘The Neighbors,’ ‘Galavant’) and Stamos for ABC Studios.”
Stamos has kept a high profile on TV lately, including appearing on USA’s “Necessary Roughness,” Fox’s “Glee” and NBC’s “The New Normal,” the report notes.
Variety adds: “He’s a regular in the upcoming ABC drama ‘Members Only,’ and he’s been active on Broadway in recent years with roles in ‘Cabaret’ and ‘The Best Man’ opposite James Earl Jones.”
Stamos was recently trying to get “I Am Victor” picked up at NBC, as we reported in June.
