Daniel Écija Bernal’s Spanish television dramedy is getting an American makeover.
Fox has put in development an adaptation of the Spanish producer, director and writer’s successful Spanish-language series Los Serrano.
The multicamera comedy will be written by The Simpsons veteran Mike Scully and his wife, former Simpsons writer-producer Julie Scully. 20th Century Fox Television, where Mike Scully has been based for more than two decades, is producing.
Created by Bernal and produced by Globomedia and Mediaset, Los Serrano premiered on Telecinco in 2003 and ran for five years and 147 episodes.
Echoing The Brady Bunch, it is about a widower with three sons who reconnects and marries his high school sweetheart, a divorced mother of two girls.
The series, which already has been adapted in nine other countries, chronicles the exploits of the blended family, with its seven members adjusting to living under the same roof.
