ABC Sticks To Premiere Week For New Season Rollout

EXCLUSIVE: In his first foray into television, Little Fockers co-writer Larry Stuckey has sold a single-camera project to ABC through Television 360, the television production arm of Management 360. The untitled comedy is inspired by Stuckey’s relationship with his brother. It centers on Gary Stuckey, for whom sibling rivalry takes on a whole new meaning when his charismatic, athletic “little brother” opens a restaurant in their hometown and his golden boy lifestyle starts to impact Gary’s wife and kids. ABC Studios is producing, with Stuckey and TV 360 executive producing.

This is Television 360′s fifth sale in this broadcast development season, joining comedies Wendy & Peter at Fox and untitled Ellen Rapoport project at NBC, and dramas Expectations at the CW and I Am Victor at NBC. Expectations and Wendy & Peter are executive produced by Reese Witherspoon. Additionally, TV 360, which operates independently with no studio deal, has several cable shows in development, including comedy Royal at HBO and drama The Oath at Showtime. The untitled Larry Stuckey project stems from the long-standing relationship between Meghan Lyvers, who oversees TV 360, and Stuckey that goes back to the Meet The Parents franchise. Lyvers recently executive produced the third installment Little Fockers for Universal, which Stuckey wrote on. He also served as associate producer on Meet The Fockers. Stuckey, repped by CAA and Michael Gendler, is currently writing a movie for Illumination. TV 360′s current series include HBO’s Game Of Thrones and Bravo’s It’s A Brad, Brad World.
