LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – After dabbling in semi-serious material with the short-lived CBS dramedy “The Defenders,” Jim Belushi is ready to work with a laugh track again.
Though the deal has not yet been finalized, the series would be produced via ABC Studios — which also produced “According to Jim.”
English most recently worked on the 2008 Eva Mendes/Meg Ryan big-screen comedy-drama “The Women,” serving as director, co-writer and producer.
“According to Jim” ran for eight seasons on ABC, from 2001 to 2009. The legal-themed “Defenders” ran for 18 episodes, before getting canceled by CBS in May.
