ABC has given a straight-to-series order for the untitled 2021-22 season comedy revolving around three guys who were "roommates in their 20s until their warring egos drove them apart who reunite decades later for one more run at the lives they’ve always wanted," per The Hollywood Reporter. Baldwin and Grammer will play two of the three guys, while the third role has yet to be cast. The comedy was created by Modern Family co-creator Christopher Lloyd and his Modern Family executive producer Vali Chandrasekaran. As The Hollywood Reporter's Lesley Goldberg notes, "the untitled comedy serves as a reunion on many levels. Lloyd previously worked with Grammer on Frasier and Fox's short-lived Back to You. Baldwin collaborated with Chandrasekaran on NBC's 30 Rock. And, of course, Lloyd co-created ABC's mega-hit Modern Family, where Chandrasekaran worked as a writer on more than half of the Emmy-winning comedy's episodes." The role will mark Baldwin's return to network sitcoms for the first time since 30 Rock. Grammer, who famously starred on Frasier and Cheers, has been starring in numerous shows, including last season's Proven Innocent on Fox and Peacock's upcoming Dr. Death.
