Victor Fresco is back at ABC

'Ted' exec producer developing sitcom

“Better Off Ted” exec producer Victor Fresco is back at ABC, where he’s developing a sitcom based on a Swedish TV format.

“Sunnyside” centers on a guy who moves, along with his wife and child, back to his hometown. Once home, the couple struggles not to turn into their parents.

Fresco is adapting the project and serving as exec producer. Warren Littlefield is also attached as exec producer, along with Henrik Bastin, the Creative Director of Stockholm-Copenhagen Prods.

ABC Studios is behind the show.

Felix Herngren created the show, known as “Solsidan” in Sweden.

Littlefield and Bastin previously collaborated on this season’s short-lived ABC drama “My Generation,” which was also based on a format from Sweden.

In the case of “Sunnyside,” that format has done extremely well in Sweden, where it recently won a Kristallen – that country’s version of the Emmys. Season two of “Sunnyside” bows in early 2011 on TV4.

Fresco’s previous series also include Fox’s “Andy Richter Controls the Universe” and “Life on a Stick,” as well as ABC’s “The Trouble with Normal.”
