"Scott Baio is an actor known and beloved by today's Nick at Nite viewers, many of whom are parents," said Marjorie Cohn, president of original programming and development at Nickelodeon. "His new project will put a contemporary and comedic twist on parenthood that will make for a great addition to our existing slate of family programming."

Tina Albanese, Patrick Labyorteaux, Eric Bischoff, Jason Hervey and Baio will executive-produce. "It's nice to be back home in an arena where I'm completely comfortable and with a show idea that I love," Baio said.
