ABC orders three comedy pilots

One adapted from Britcom 'Only Fools and Horses'

ABC ordered a trio of comedy pilots Friday.

20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television will deliver the half-hour single camera pilot “How to Live With Your Parents For The Rest Of Your Life” from Claudia Lonow ( “Accidentally on Purpose”), who will executive produce with Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo.

“Parents” involves a recently divorced, single mom moves in with her eccentric parents, a couple who’s full of life but knows no boundaries.

The studio is also behind a half-hour single camera pilot from Adam Sztykiel (“Due Date”), who will be attached as co-executive producer. Sean Perrone and Aaron Kaplan are also attached as executive producers. The pilot is billed as a peek behind the curtain of modern twentysomething relationships.

ABC Studios and “Happy Endings” consulting producers Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley are behind the third, “Only Fools And Horses.” A multi-camera adaptation of British series, this comedy chronicles the misadventures of two streetwise brothers and their aging grandfather as they concoct outrageous, morally questionable get-rich-quick schemes in their quest to become millionaires.
