The project, from Matt Williams — who also created ABC’s “Roseanne” — Carmen Finestra and David McFadzean, follows a sports psychologist and father of three who runs his office out of his home and faces the challenges of being an involved dad in today’s world.

The sitcom, which has received a script commitment with penalty from the network, is being produced by ABC Studios.

The WME-repped Williams, Finestra and McFadzean are executive producing via their Wind Dancer Prods. Banner.
