Fox is looking to one of the stars from Netflix's Fuller House for its next family comedy.

The network is teaming with actor-writer Scott Weinger to develop an untitled family comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The project, which landed at Fox with a script commitment, is described as a single-camera comedy about a married couple whose lives are turned upside down when the wife's immigrant father comes to live with them. The father-in-law's larger-than-life personality and his inclination to take big risks clashes with his strait-laced son-in-law.

Weinger, who plays D.J.'s ex-boyfriend on the Full House revival, will pen the script and executive produce the new project alongside 3 Arts Entertainment's Jonathan Berry.

The comedy hails from Warner Bros. Television, which also exec produces Fuller House.

In addition to his acting roles, Weinger has a long and impressive roster of TV writing and producing credits that include The Muppets, Galavant, Black-ish, The Neighbors and 90210. Repped by UTA and attorney Bruce Gellman, Weinger is also married to TV writer/showrunner Rina Mimoun (Everwood, Mistresses, Gilmore Girls).

Family comedies continue to be in high demand at the broadcast networks this development season.
