This is not a spec sale; the pitch was bought by ABC late last year and the script will be is in consideration for this pilot cycle. Last year, Iglesias starred in the ABC multi-camera comedy pilot The Fluffy Shop.
Written by Taylor Hamra (Nashville), the untitled project focuses on a commitment-phobe bachelor who reconnects with his friend who has just broken up with the woman he has been with since pre-school. Iglesias stars and executive produces.
