ABC has greenlit a pilot for comedy, Man of the House starring Alyson Hannigan. The pilot is written and executive produced by Vijal Patel and Frank Pines alongside Gail Berman and Joe Early of the Jackal Group.
The story is inspired by Pines’ life and focuses on two sisters who, being recently divorced, decide to move in together with their children. Alyson will play Jessie a “caring social worker who was shocked when her husband left her. With nowhere else to turn, and against her better judgement, she moves her teenage football-star son and preteen daughter into the home of her narcissistic, ball-busting sister Charli and her even more wicked daughter.”
Jessie’s son is the eponymous Man of the House, being the only male in the new household.
