The ’80s-set potential series is inspired by Goldberg’s experiences growing up in a hectic, but loving, family.

McLendon-Covey originally was cast in King of Van Nuys, another ABC comedy pilot that was an adaptation of the BBC’s Only Fools and Horses. The Alphabet Net passed on that project in December.

The actress — one of TVLine’s most wanted properties this pilot season — also is gearing up for another go as Modern Family’s lesbian woodworker Pam and a return to CBS’ Rules of Engagement later this season.

  • Glad she is coming back to Rules. Her character Liz is hysterical. Hope she succeeds in new outing.
