ABC Orders Comedy With Alec Baldwin and Kelsey Grammer

ABC has given a straight-to-series order for a multi-camera sitcom starring Alec Baldwin and Kelsey Grammer for the 2020-21 season. The untitled series revolves around three men who were roommates in their twenties until their warring egos drove them apart. Now, the trio reunites decades later for one more run at the lives they’ve always wanted. Baldwin and Grammer will play two of the aforementioned roommates, with the third cast member to be announced at a later date.

Twentieth Television is the studio behind the project, which hails from “Modern Family” co-creator Chris Lloyd and executive producer Vali Chandrasekaran. The pair will serve as writers and executive producers alongside Baldwin and Grammer. Lloyd worked with Grammer on “Frasier” prior to creating “Modern Family,” while Chandrasekaran was a writer and producer on Baldwin’s “30 Rock.”
