ABC has put in development a half-hour family comedy from Kelsey Grammer and his Grammnet Productions, veteran sitcom writer-producer Robert Peacock, creator of The Haunted Hathaways, and ABC Studios.

Written and executive produced by Peacock, the untitled project centered on a military vet who returns home only to be greeted by a mountain of debt and a depressed job market. He has no choice but to move his family in with his widowed mother, an opinionated conservative who is perpetually outraged about their changing neighborhood demographics.

Grammer executive produces with Grammnet’s Tom Russo.

Frasier and Boss alum Grammer stars opposite Matt Boman in Amazon’s upcoming drama series The Last Tycoon and voices Blinky in Guillermo del Toro’s Trollhunters animated series for Netflix. He’s repped by UTA, 3 Arts amd Paul Mayersohn.

Peacock, whose series credits include Mad About You, Suddenly Susan, Reba and The Soul Man, repped by UTA and attorney Michael Sherman.
