Mel Gibson To Launch Sitcom Inspired By His Family

Hollywood star MEL GIBSON is working on a television sitcom inspired by his life as a father of six boys.

The LETHAL WEAPON actor is developing a pilot show - about a working-class single dad of five teenage boys - for the as-yet-untitled series for American network ABC.

The script is being written by real-life couple JULIE THACKER and THE SIMPSONS's MIKE SCULLY, who themselves have five girls.

Julie says, "Mike and I decided to do a comedy about five boys because we have five girls, and trust me, there's nothing funny about that."

Network president DAVID KISSINGER says, "Mel, Mike and Julie have come up with a hilarious show that portrays the rough-and-tumble and noisy truth about raising boys.

"It's a perfect fit with the smart, contemporary family sitcoms that are ABC's hallmark."
