ABC orders Abbate comedy

Levy, Adelstein, Clements to exec produce

ABC has ordered an untitled single-cam comedy pilot from writer Andrea Abbate.

Shawn Levy, Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements will exec produce the project for 20th Century Fox TV and 21 Laps/Adelstein.

The comedy focuses on the white sheep in a family of black sheep: petty thieves, drug addicts and narcissists. When her brother is sent to prison, the woman decides to raise his kids along with her adopted African American son, offering them as normal a life as she can.

Recent exec producing credits in TV for Levy, Adelstein and Clements include ABC’s “Last Man Standing.” Abbate was a coordinating producer on CBS’ “Accidentally on Purpose.”
