ABC has purchased a single-camera comedy titled Garage Bar that, unlike yesterday's purchase of Mixology, is not set in a bar. It is set to be written, directed, and executive produced by Zach Braff, though. It's an ensemble project about a bunch of friends in the orbit of their one newly pop star-ified friend. Deadline writes that the show combines "a workplace idea with the heart and humor of Braff’s 2004 feature Garden State." Groan or celebrate accordingly.
