( — Uncle Buck is officially coming to TV. ABC has greenlit to series a reboot of the 1989 John Candy film. In a spin on the original film’s casting, the series version has an all-black cast led by Mike Epps (The Hangover franchise).

The pitch: “Uncle Buck (Mike Epps) is a fun loving but irresponsible guy who needs a job and a place to stay. By happy coincidence, his nieces and nephew’s Nanny has just quit and his brother and sister-in-law need his help. His unconventional personality just may make him the right fit for the family and they may be the answer to his problems, too.”
