80’s movie Uncle Buck has received a green light for a TV adaption pilot order from ABC.

Based on the 1989 movie starring the late great John Candy, the central character is a irresponsible, childish man who learns how to behave like an adult after taking care of his brother’s children.

The series is set to be a family comedy that will follow the same premises as the original movie.

This is not the first time that a network have had a stab at making Uncle Buck into a TV series, after CBS flop in 1990.

It was also recently announced that NBC would be moving forward with a pilot order  for a TV adaption of the 1990 comedy  Problem Child.  The series is allegedly following the same idea as the movie, centering on a family in which the parents are constantly being bamboozled by their precocious and inherently evil child.
