DEVELOPMENT STAGE: ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release) Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them... complete with back-up singers. Meet Dan, a moderately talented, deeply aspiring wannabe songwriter whose life has reached a crossroads. Dan's father wishes he would trade his creative streak for a regular job (bartending would be good). But it's Dan's free-spirited, unconventional aunt Kitty, a singer herself, who finally inspires Dan to pursue his dream. So Dan sets out to blend the best of both worlds. He's managing the bar for his dad. But he's also performing nightly in Buffalo, New York, with his version of Kitty's act: Can a guy make it singing I am woman, hear me roar? Inspired by Dan Finnerty's wildly successful act, The Dan Band, this refreshing new comedy about the joys of not conforming is executive produced by the director of the hit film Charlie's Angels (McG) and the team that produced The Drew Carey Show.
