ABC Commissions New Alien Sit-Com Pilot

From the writer of Cars, Tangled and Crazy, Stupid Love

US TV network ABC has given a pilot order to a new sci-fi sit-com from Cars and Tangled writer Dan Fogelman, reports Deadline .

The as-yet-unnamed show is about a family that moves into a highly desirable gated community in New Jersey only to discover that the entire place is inhabited by aliens disguised as humans (sounds like Milton Keynes to us).

The show will be a half-hour, single camera comedy – which usually means a more filmic look and no laugh track (think My Name Is Earl or Scrubs , rather than Friends or The Big Bang Theory ).
