Nia Long and Mike Epps have been cast in Will Packer’s new ABC pilot “Uncle Buck.” Get show deets inside and see candids of BBW LA’s Brandi Maxiell.

Remember the classic John Hughes comedy Uncle Buck starring John Candy? The film is getting a tv-makeover with Ride Along producer Will Packer at the helm. Deadline reveals that comedian Mike Epps has been tapped for the lead role while Nia Long has been cast as his wife.

If you’re unfamiliar with the film, Buck Russell (Epps), is a childish man who learns how to be an adult by taking care of his brother kids in a very childish way. Insiders think Uncle Buck would be a suitable companion for ABC’s other single-camera African American family comedy, Black-ish.

Is ABC about to get another “Black” night? NOTE TO ABC: Please don’t pit it against “Empire”.

In LA…..

Speaking of tv shows, “BBW LA” star Brandi Maxiell was spotted shopping in Beverly Hill today. While we aren’t totally sure about the new cast of “BBW LA”, we are certain that Brandi’s former nemesis Sundy Carter won’t be on the show. She confirmed her departure a few days ago.

You’ll recall that Brandi, who is married to Charlotte Hornets star Jason Maxiell, battled divorce rumors a few months ago. But she confirmed to us that her marriage is fine. And she’s STILL shopping in Beverly Hills.
