‘Sunny’ writers sell comedy to ABC

Lee, Walsh sell half-hour show to network

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” scribes Sonny Lee and Patrick Walsh have sold a half-hour family/workplace comedy project to ABC.

Mark Gordon and Deborah Spera (“Grey’s Anatomy”) are onboard to exec produce “Family Business,” which centers on a dysfunctional Midwestern family that tries to keep their grocery business afloat after being rocked by divorce.

Multicam comedy comes from ABC Studios, where Gordon is based. Lee and Walsh are writing the script and will co-exec produce.

This season is the second the scribes have developed for ABC Studios; last year they wrote the script “Broke Friends,” which was developed with Luke Greenfield for Fox.

On “Sunny,” Lee and Walsh are producers for the upcoming season.
