ABC Gives Pilot Orders to 'Man Up,' 'Smothered'

ABC has given pilot orders to two comedies.

Man Up, a half-hour single-camera series, is a unique look at what it takes to survive as a modern man, told through three best friends and the women in their lives.

Chris Moynihan, Ron West and Kelly Kulchak are executive producing. Man Up comes from ABC Studios.

Smothered centers on a couple who find themselves dealing with their two sets of parents whose only thing in common is that their children are married to each other. The couple's one-year-old brings the two opposing families together.

The half-hour multi-camera pilot was written by Andrew Reich and Ted Cohen and is based on the duo's experiences. Warner Bros. TV is producing.
