Bob Saget, once known as the warm and welcoming Danny Tanner on Full House, could be returning to the network that made him a star. Saget plays the lead in the series Surviving Suburbia, which was supposed to air on the CW this year, but after the CW decided to change up its Sunday programming, the show was orphaned — and now ABC might want it.
According to Variety, the production company behind the show kept working on it even after the CW turned it down, and so now it has 13 episodes done and ready for some network to buy. ABC apparently wants to get some more traditional comedies, and Surviving Suburbia sounds like just that: The show centers on a suburban family whose lives are turned upside down by some new neighbors who move in next door.
Ever since Full House, Saget's probably become better known for his raunchy standup, so I'm wondering: Could you take him seriously these days as a sweet surburban dad? To check out a video of him talking about Surviving Suburbia — along with a number of the other shows that were supposed to air Sundays on the CW — just read more.
