The multi-camera sitcom was to star John Leguizamo (ER) and Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future) as two members of a family caught up in zany get-rich-quick schemes. Bridesmaids‘ Wendi McLendon-Covey also appeared in the pilot.

The potential series was originally developed last pilot season. Though the network initially passed, ABC chief Paul Lee was a fan and ordered a second pilot that reunited almost the entire team from the initial go-around. The network officially greenlit the second attempt in August.
