Today, during Disney’s Investors Day 2020, Disney announced that a reimagining of ‘Cheaper by the Dozen’, will coming to Disney+ in 2022.
Kenya Barris, from “Blackish”, will produce. The story will centers on a blended family of 12, navigating a hectic home life and their family business. Gabrielle Union is set to star.
According to Illuminerdi, in the new Cheaper By The Dozen story, Tom Baker starts off working at a diner and ultimately takes it over after meeting Zoey. The couple struggle with bills and their growing family when his diner is bought out and franchised. Tom moves his culturally mixed family into the suburbs, which offers its own set of challenges. Adding to the stress, Tom is then forced into endless business trips to sell his special sauce and find new franchising opportunities on the road, leaving Zoey to deal with the comedic madness at home.
No further details have been announced at this time.
