Actress Nia Long is headed back to television with a new sitcom fam in “Uncle Buck.” ABC just released the first promo photo and announced they are picking up the series also starring Mike Epps–as the lead character Buck–James Lesure and more.
Deadline says about the Will Packer-Executive Produced series:
Written by Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley, the series centers on Uncle Buck (Mike Epps), a fun loving but irresponsible guy who needs a job and a place to stay.
