Barely two weeks after Fox gave Back to You the bad news (and just days after Kelsey Grammer told us he was at a loss for what's next), the Emmy-winning comedy vet has joined the ABC pilot Roman's Empire.

Per the Reporter, the single-camera comedy concerns a young guy who after getting dumped by his girlfriend, cannot seem to break free from her wealthy family, the Prettys. Lording over the clan is its overbearing patriarch, Roman (played by Grammer). - MWM
