The semi-autobiographical pilot is inspired by the life experiences of Iglesias, known to his fans as Fluffy. The comedy follows the comedian as a stepfather and boss to his family and friends, as he navigates his home life during the few days he spends off the road each week.
Savas will play Reggie, Gabe’s manager, who isn’t a slick Hollywood player but tries to carry himself like one. Gabe met Reggie early in his career and sticks with him out of loyalty. Reggie travels with Gabe, working his ass off, always seeking out their next career opportunity. A bachelor, Reggie also enjoys drafting off of Gabe’s celebrity in hopes of meeting women.
The multicam comedy was co-written by Tim Doyle and Jay Lavender, who will serve as exec producers with Iglesias, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements and Joe Meloche. ABC Studios is producing.
Savas’ other TV credits include TNT’s “The Last Ship,” plus guest spots on “Stitchers,” “House,” “Justified,” “CSI: NY” and “Castle.” He is repped by Ellis Talent Group and Joel Stevens Entertainment Company.
