Alyson Hannigan to Star in ABC Comedy Pilot ‘Man of the House’ From Kerry Washington

Multi-camera hybrid sitcom revolves around two divorced sisters raising their kids under one roof

ABC has picked up the Kerry Washington-produced comedy “Man of the House” to pilot, with Alyson Hannigan attached to star.

Written by “Baby Daddy” executive producer Frank Pines and “black-ish” alum Vijal Patel, the hybrid sitcom is a family comedy about two recently divorced sisters who decide to move in together to raise their kids under one roof, including a young football star left to figure out what manhood means in a world where he’s now completely surrounded by females.

The “How I Met Your Mother” star will play Jessie, a caring social-worker who was shocked when her husband left her. With nowhere else to turn, and against her better judgment, she moves her son and pre-teen daughter into the home of her narcissistic, ball-busting sister Charli and her even more-wicked daughter.

Washington will executive produce with Pilar Savone of her production company Simpson Street. Gail Berman and Joe Earley will also serve as executive producers for The Jackal Group.

Hannigan is repped by APA and attorney Joel McKuin.
