Writer/Doctor Simon Stephenson Is Developing a Medical Comedy for ABC

By

A day after announcing the development of three new comedy series, ABC has added yet another with THR’s report that the network has given a put-pilot commitment to a medical comedy called Family Practice. Written by doctor/writer Simon Stephenson – who wrote an episode of the UK series Eleventh Hour as well as a memoir Let Not the Waves of the Sea – the comedy “centers on a dysfunctional family of doctors who run a family practice in small town America.” Stephenson will executive produce alongside Dan Fogelman, who is also serving as an EP on an in-the-works ABC comedy series based on the life of Carson Daly.
