Emmy winners Alec Baldwin and Kelsey Grammer are set to star in and executive produce an upcoming comedy series.
US television network ABC has handed a straight-to-series order to the still-untitled project, which will be following three men who were roommates back in their 20s and great friends until their egos split them apart. Decades later, the guys reunite for one more crack at the lives they have always wanted. Baldwin and Grammer will be playing two of the men; no word as yet on who’ll be the third.
The show comes from Modern Family co-creator/EP Chris Lloyd and exec producer Vali Chandrasekaran, who both have deals at producing studio 20th Television. Chandrasekaran’s credits include My Name is Earl and 30 Rock, the latter of which also starred Baldwin.
This show will mark a reunion of sorts for Baldwin and Grammer, who were both on the award-winning 30 Rock when Grammer played himself in three episodes. Among Baldwin’s upcoming credits: reprising the titular voice role of Boss Baby 2 and biopic Lamborghini, where he’ll play car brand magnate Enzo Ferrari. For Grammer: continuing his voice work on the Trollhunters brand with its first film, Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans, and the thriller The God Committee.
