As we mentioned in our interview with him last month, 2012 is proving to be a HUGE year for John Leguizamo. Not only does he have a flurry of movies coming out, news just broke that he’s scored a TV development deal with ABC.
The versatile Colombian-American star will be delving into comedy for his latest small screen adventure. Deadline.com is reporting that his new series will be a single-camera sitcom based on his family life in New York City.
And don’t worry Leguizamo fans, John won’t just be behind-the-scenes for this project. The Ghetto Klown will be starring in the series as well, which is being produced by entertainment vets David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman.
That’s all very exciting news to us. And who knows? If all goes well, the alphabet network may even schedule it on the same night as Modern Family!
