Would you watch? A new sitcom about an Irish American family in the 1970s is in the works from Last Man Standing showrunner Tim Doyle.
Could this Irish family comedy succeed? For pilot season, Deadline reports that ABC has ordered up a still-untitled single-camera comedy about an Irish American family with eight sons, growing up in the 1970s.
It’s the brainchild of TV writer and producer Tim Doyle, whose past credits include The Last Man Standing, Rules of Engagement, Better Off Ted, Big Bang Theory, and Roseanne.
As they reported:
Written and executive produced by Doyle, the untitled comedy is set in the 1970s and revolves around an Irish-Catholic family with a working-class dad, traditional mom and eight boisterous sons who navigate changes big and small during one of America’s most turbulent decades.
Sounds fun enough!
ABC recently ran another Irish American focused sitcom, The Real O’Neals, for two seasons, from 2016 - 2017.
