Actor-comedian John Leguizamo has been given the green light for a comedy show pilot based on his own life.
Bing: More on Leguizamo
The actor will headline the untitled half-hour project for ABC, focusing on his life as a husband, father and "fish out of water" living in Manhattan's Upper West Side neighborhood.
The project marks Leguizamo's latest shot at an ABC show. Last year, his pilot for "Kings of Van Nuys" never received a series pickup from the network.
