Tim Allen Signs onto ABC Pilot

Tim Allen-Wild Hogs

Tim Allen, who played Home Improvement’s Tim Taylor, is returning to star in a new ABC multi-camera comedy pilot whose lead was initially named Tim Fitzgerald.

According to EW.com, the original ABC pilot was going to center on a man called Tim, who is “fighting for his manhood in a world that is being increasingly dominated by women.” But the story line is being adjusted now that Allen has joined the show; and his character will definitely not be called Tim, per Hollywood.com. The sitcom is also currently unnamed, though the working titles were originally known as Man Up and The Last Days of Man.

The comedy pilot will be written by Jack Burditt (30 Rock, The Mike O’Malley Show, Inside Schwartz) and produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television and Marty Adelstein’s Lost Marbles Productions.

Bring on the guy humor!
