PRODUCTION BEGINS IN BURBANK ON THE NEW COMEDY SERIES, "FREDDIE," STARRING FREDDIE PRINZE, JR., AIRING WEDNESDAYS THIS FALL ON THE ABC TELEVISION NETWORK

Production has begun in Burbank on the new comedy series, "Freddie," starring Freddie Prinze, Jr. Prinze will be making his television series starring debut in this offbeat family comedy from the team behind "The Drew Carey Show" and "George Lopez." The series will premiere WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 5 (8:30-9:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Freddie Moreno (Prinze) had finally escaped from the raucous house of women with whom he grew up. Having achieved some success as head chef at a trendy Chicago restaurant, he's ready for love and everything else that single life has to offer, including hanging out with his best friend and neighbor, Chris (Brian Green, "Beverly Hills 90210"). Unfortunately, there's one slight hitch: After the death of his older brother and the collapse of his sister's (Jacqueline Obradors, "NYPD Blue") marriage, goodhearted Freddie took in his impulsive sister-in-law (Mddchen Amick, "Twin Peak"), his pragmatic sister with her 13-year-old daughter (Chloe Suazo, "The Comeback") and their irascible grandma (Jenny Gago, "Coach Carter"), who refuses to speak English and only responds in Spanish -- even though she understands every word. But while the members of this unconventional brood may test Freddie's patience endlessly, they also support and take care of one another, just as they always have. Now all Freddie has to do is figure out how to maintain his thriving bachelor lifestyle in a house overflowing with estrogen.

"Freddie" is inspired by Freddie Prinze Jr.'s real life, growing up in a house filled with women (his mother and Puerto Rican grandmother). His life-long friend, Conrad Jackson, co-created this series with Prinze, along with executive producers Bruce Helford and Bruce Rasmussen. The friendship between Freddie and Chris in the show is loosely based on their lives. Prinze stars in the new sitcom, which he has co-created and will write, and for which he will also assume a role as the youngest executive producer in ABC's history.

"Freddie" stars Freddie Prinze, Jr. as Freddie Moreno, Jacqueline Obradors as Sofia, Brian A. Green as Chris, Mddchen Amick as Allison, Jenny Gago as Grandma and Chloe Suazo as Zoey.

Bruce Helford, Deborah Oppenheimer, Bruce Rasmussen and Freddie Prinze, Jr. serve as executive producers. "Freddie," which is filmed before an audience, is from Warner Bros. Television.
