Single-camera comedy centers on two exes raising a teen

ABC has added another single-camera comedy to its pilot roster.

On Monday, the network picked up "It Takes a Village," a new age nuclear family comedy from ABC Studios and producer Mark Gordon.

Written by Casey Johnson and David Windsor ("Greek"), "Village" centers on two exes and their new significant others as they join forces to raise their 15-year-old boy.

 The project was originally developed at ABC a couple of seasons ago under the title "Family Values." At the time, the focus was on one of the parents, a gay dad, while now the show has been reworked as a "it takes a village" family comedy.

Johnson and Windsor are executive producing the pilot with Mark Gordon Co.'s Gordon, Deborah Spera and Andrea Shay.
