Tim Allen may be returning to series television.
The former Home Improvement star has signed to headline the ABC pilot, known as The Last Days of Man.
The original pilot was to center on a man named Tim navigating a world dominated by women. But now that Allen is on-board, it will be retooled, say sources. And Allen's character will definitely not be named Tim.
The multi-camera comedy is from writer Jack Burdett (30 Rock, The Mike O’Malley Show, Inside Schwartz) and produced by 21 Laps and Adelstein Productions in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television. Burdett, Allen and Marty Adelstein, Shawn Levy, Becky Clements, Richard Baker and Rick Messina are executive producers.
