The late-night host is set to pen and executive produce a single-cam comedy pilot titled “Adopted,” which has been ordered at ABC.
The prospective series also comes from two military veterans: Shawn Vance, a former United States special forces Green Beret, and Daril Fannin, a former combat army medic. Vance and Fannin will write and exec produce alongside Kimmel.
“Adopted” centers on a Green Beret who returns home to Texas from military service. Once home, he and his family struggle with the challenges of adopting his new brother, a 12-year-old Russian boy.
