'Modern Family's' Jason Winer will helm the pilot

Fox has landed “Man/Child,” a project from Damon Wayans Jr. with a pilot production commitment.

Comedy centers on two single dads who move in together and struggle to find the balance between being responsible parents and debaucherous bachelor.

“Wilfred” showrunners Reed Agnew and Eli Jorne will pen and exec produce “Man/Child,” with Wayans Jr. also exec producing.  “Modern Family” helmer Jason Winer will direct “Man/Child” and also receive an exec producer credit.

20th Century Fox TV and Small Dog Picture Company will produce the pilot.

“Man/Child” marks one of Wayans Jr.’s first forays behind the camera. The thesp, who hails from the comedic powerhouse Wayans family, appeared in Fox’s “New Girl” pilot before ankling the show and taking on a lead character on ABC’s “Happy Endings.” “Happy Endings” was cancelled after three seasons by ABC earlier this year.
