New FOX Comedy Grandfathered Gets Full Season


LOS ANGELES: FOX has ordered a full season of Grandfathered, a freshman family comedy series starring John Stamos (Full House).

Grandfathered centers on an aging bachelor who discovers that he is both a father and grandfather. Season to date, the show has delivered year-over-year gains, increasing the network's average in the time period by 70 percent versus last fall among 18- to 49-year-old adults. The series is produced by ABC Studios and 20th Century Fox Television. It is created and written by The Office's Daniel Chun, who also serves as exec producer alongside Stamos and Dan Fogelman (Galavant).

"Grandfathered had the Herculean task of self-starting on what is an incredibly competitive Tuesday night, and the series has proven itself up to the challenge," said David Madden, the president of entertainment at Fox Broadcasting Company. "Since the very beginning we knew this show would be that rare commodity—a genuinely original family comedy. The remarkable John Stamos, Josh Peck, Paget Brewster, and the entire cast have sparkling chemistry, and the show's creative team has delivered fantastic scripts that keep these great characters moving. We know fans are going to love the surprises in store for the rest of the season."

All episodes of Grandfathered are available on FOX NOW, Hulu and Fox On Demand.
