Hollywood is stretching the envelope once again, by trying to make illegal aliens the cultural norm. ABC is reported to be working on a new sitcom, to come into your living rooms on a weekly basis so you can fall in love with a Hollywood family of illegal immigrants.
The topic of illegal immigration in America is getting another Hollywood treatment with ABC’s announcement Wednesday that it’s developing a comedy series about an undocumented family.
The sitcom, tentatively titled Sanctuary Family, centers on a husband and wife who constantly clash over the chaos created when they provide sanctuary for their undocumented nanny and her family, Deadline reports. The two families slowly come to learn that their similarities far outweigh their differences.
Veteran comedy scribe David Feeney (New Girl, 2 Broke Girls) will write and executive produce the project, while Christine Gernon (Speechless, New Girl) will direct and executive produce.
The ABC comedy joins a growing number of network and cable projects that take on the hot-button political issue of immigration and illegal aliens in America.
Two undocumented immigrant-focused dramas are in the works at CBS and The CW from Golden Globe Award-winning actress and activist Gina Rodriguez.
Do you ever wonder if Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” will make it back to network TV? What a great show with conservative values. You can bet nothing like the conservative dialogue on Allen’s show will air on the new “Sanctuary Family” series.
