Actor/comedian John Leguizamo has been given the green light for a comedy show pilot based on his own life.
The Moulin Rouge! star will headline the untitled half-hour project for ABC, focusing on his life as a husband, father and ‘fish out of water’ living in the exclusive Upper West Side neighborhood in New York.
The project marks Leguizamo’s latest shot at ABC – last year, his comedy pilot Kings of Van Nuys never received a series pickup from the network.
