ABC developing comedy for Saget

Bob Saget, an important member of the ABC family with long tours of duty on "Full House" and "America's Funniest Home Videos," is looking to stay with the network.

ABC has given a script commitment to the "My Wife and Kids" duo of Damon Wayans and Don Reo to develop a family comedy for "Dirty Work" director Saget. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reo and Wayans will write the pilot, which would star Saget as a divorced father who takes custody of his children.

Reo and Wayans also would executive produce.

Saget hasn't been a regular on the small screen since the WB aired 22 episodes of "Raising Dad." The comedian is probably best known for playing Danny Tanner on "Full House," which ran on ABC from 1987-1995 and his 1990-97 stint as host of "America's Funniest Home Videos."
