The film will also put the focus on the mother dealing with the chaotic household.
Gail Lerner of Black-ish will be directing this series. Barris will also be writing the script alongside Jenifer Rice-Genzuk. Donald J. Lee Jr.
Braff is best known for his Emmy-winning performance in Scrubs. The actor can next be seen in the indie The Comeback Trail opposite Robert DeNiro and in Percy opposite Christopher Walken.
