Pilot News: ABC Orders Chevy Chase-Beverly D'Angelo Reunion, Memoir-ish Dan Savage Comedy

Vacation season has arrived at ABC.

Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo — stars of the 1983 big-screen classic National Lampoon’s Vacation — are reuniting for a new ABC comedy pilot called Chev & Bev.

The single-camera project will feature the duo as “two baby boomers who are fun, relevant and living a selfish retirement when their world is turned upsisde down and they are suddenly left to raise their grandchildren.”

The network also ordered an untitled single-camera comedy pilot produced by and loosely based on the life of gay activist and author Dan Savage.

The project, written by David Windsor and Casey Johnson (Galavant, Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23), is described as follows: “A picture perfect family is turned upside down when the youngest son comes out of the closet. What seems like the end of their idyllic life turns out to be the beginning of a bright new chapter when everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real.”
