Awkward Family Photos To Become TV Show

You can blame $#*! My Dad Says for this news: ABC is developing the Awkward Family Photos book (which is based on a blog) into a TV series.

According to TheLiveFeed, the show will be a scripted comedy, but it’s unclear how the concept will translate to TV. Perhaps the show will be set in a shopping mall type photography studio?

The Awkward Family Photos blog and book were created by Mike Bender and Doug Chernack as a place to showcase those embarrassing family photos everyone seems to have. They started with their own photos and now receive reader submissions from around the world.

Sony Pictures TV is producing Awkward Family Photos for ABC. Moses Port and David Guarascio (Aliens in America, Just Shoot Me) are writers and executive producers. Mike Bender and Doug Chernack are also executive producers. Joe and Anthony Russo are executive producing and directing.

So what do you think of this news? Do you have any ideas for translating the concept from blog to screen?
