Scott Baio Developing New Sitcom With Nick at Nite

After trying out reality TV, former ”Charles in Charge“ star is poised to make his triumphant return to scripted comedy

Looks like Charles might be back in charge soon. Or at least the guy who played him might be.

Nick at Nite is developing a sitcom for former "Happy Days" and "Charles in Charge" star, the actor's representative confirms to TheWrap.

The series, currently titled "Daddy's Home," would cast Baio as a "TV dad" who retires from the small screen in order to become a stay-at-home parent so his soap-opera actress wife can go back to work. Baio will also be co-executive producing the project.

Baio, who delved into reality TV with 2007's "Scott Baio is 45…and Single," also starred in the 2008 TV movie "Finish Line."
