ABC Developing Family Sitcom From ‘Simpsons’ Pair

Oct 17, 2014  •  Post A Comment

ABC has picked up a script for a new family comedy project from a pair of producers behind Fox’s “The Simpsons.” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the project, “Raising Adults,” comes from married couple Mike Scully — an exec producer on “The Simpsons” — and Julie Scully, a former writer-producer on the show.

The couple will write the script and executive produce the project, the report notes. The project is from 20th Century Fox Television.

THR reports: “The multicamera comedy, based on a spec script that the duo wrote, centers on a married couple who, over the course of 20 years of parenting three children, have gone from saying, ‘They grow up so fast,’ to wondering, ‘Will they ever grow up?’ It’s loosely based on the Scullys’ experiences guiding their five adult kids toward independence, ‘a job with no current end in sight.'”
