ABC is developing a new multi-camera comedy titled “Forgive & Forget.” The series comes from duo Eugene Garcia-Cross and Robin Shorr (Punky Brewster) and Ty Burrell (Modern Family). Deadline reports the show is a family comedy about Alzheimer’s.
The series follows Ben Flemings, who, when his life-of-the-party father is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, is forced to take in the one man he’s worked his whole life not to become.
Garcia-Cross will write with Shorr as showrunner. They will exec produce alongside Burrell via his Desert Whale Productions banner. “Forgive and Forget” is inspired by Garcia-Cross’ experiences of caring for a parent with Alzheimer’s and the show hopes to destigmatize a disease afflicting millions.
20th Television is the studio.
The show will air on ABC and stream on Hulu in the United States and is expected to release on Disney+ internationally. A release date for “Forgive & Forget” has not been announced yet.
