ABC has ordered a half-hour comedy pilot co-created by and starring John Leguizamo.

The untitled project is based on the actor-comedian’s life as a husband, father and fish out of water on the Upper West Side of New York. Woven into this world are his privileged wife, his friends from his life back in the Bronx, his mother and grandfather who try to keep him grounded in his Latin roots, and his own kids who he worries are getting spoiled and losing touch with reality.

Maybe the tide is indeed turning.
