In October of last year, ABC announced plans that it was developing another sitcom based on the iconic John Candy film, Uncle Buck. If you didn’t burn it from memory, this isn’t the first time network brass have tried to adapt the movie for the small screen, attempting to do it in 1990 and put Kevin Meaney in the title role. Now it appears that a multi-cam show will feature Mike Epps in the title role. Epps will play Buck Russell, “a childish man who learns how to be an adult by taking care of his brother Will’s kids in a very childish way.” Nia Long will play Will’s wife. There’s been some protest from both John Candy and John Hughes families who released a statement last year voicing their displeasure, particularly after the first sitcom wasn’t something the famous director desired.
