Fellow 'National Lampoon' alum Beverly D'Angelo teaming with Chase on project

With fallout from his dramatic “Community” exit finally settling, Chevy Chase is eying a return to TV over on the Alphabet.

Variety has confirmed that Chase is developing a comedy at ABC with his “National Lampoon’s Vacation” co-star Beverly D’Angelo. ABC has offered a production commitment to the project, which centers on a married couple (Chase, D’Angelo) raising grandchildren.

Aaron Kaplan is attached to the single-cam comedy as a producer, but details regarding the comedy are still unknown — at this point, there is no script, writer or studio attached to the development.

Chase appeared on NBC’s “Community” for four seasons before exiting the series in late 2012.

      Can someone please tell these idiot producers & directors that single cam is almost unwatchable. It like putting a helmet cam on a caffeine crazed spider monkey. Lucy and Desi are laughing somewhere.

    “Chevy Chase Developing Comedy at ABC” . . . after a 40 year dry spell? Not likely. I thought his funny bone had bone cancer. 2 and a half angry white males.
