Fox catches Kutcher’s ‘Grandpa’

Ashton Kutcher is turning his real-life relationship with Demi Moore into a sitcom – sort of. Fox has made a pilot commitment to the tentatively titled “30 Year Old Grandpa,” a half-hour comedy from writer Holly Hester (“The Drew Carey Show”) about a young man who marries an older woman and becomes the stepfather to kids nearly his age. “Grandpa” will be set in Chicago and won’t include any of the showbiz trappings involved in the Kutcher-Moore romance. Indeed, according to Burke, the idea for the project actually began as a much different concept. “It started out as an idea about a mother and daughter having kids at the same time,” she said. “It then dawned on us that the guy’s point of view on this was the comedy hook.”
