ABC ANNOUNCES PICK-UP OF JOHN STAMOS COMEDY FOR MIDSEASON

The ABC Television Network has ordered a new midseason comedy series starring John Stamos as a smooth-as-silk New York publicist. Stephen McPherson, president, ABC Primetime Entertainment, made the announcement today before a gathering of executives from ABC's owned and affiliated stations.

The untitled comedy joins three previously announced new drama series ("Blind Justice," "Eyes" and "Grey's Anatomy") on ABC's midseason slate, bringing ABC's current total of new midseason shows to four.

The series stars John Stamos as Jake Phillips, a New York-based publicist-to-the-stars. Jake is sharply dressed, smart talking, smooth as silk and on call 24/7 to meet the needs of his A-list clientele. He's also a ladies' man, and one could apply the same description to his dedicated work in that area.

Also starring are M�dchen Amick ("Twin Peaks") as Kylie Clarke, Rick Hoffman ("Philly") as Patrick, Bess Meyer as Val and Ian Gomez ("My Big Fat Greek Wedding," "The Drew Carey Show") as Adrian.

The series is executive-produced by Brad Grey ("The Sopranos," "The Larry Sanders Show") and Peter Traugott. Tim Doyle ("Roseanne," "Andy Richter Controls the Universe") served as executive producer on the pilot. Austin Winsberg ("Still Standing") is co-executive producer and writer of the series from Brad Grey Television Productions in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television.
