Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos have partnered up with ABC and their Milojo Productions company to bring a new comedy series to television. The couple is developing a new half-hour sitcom, The Sanchez Way via their first-look deal with ABC Studios.
Deadline is reporting the series will focus on Pedro Sanchez, a patriarch of a loud yet proud Mexican-American family, which lives by a strict working-class code. Pedro feels that same code is being threatened when his "fresa” brother-in-law (a Mexican yuppie) moves to town and wants to be part of the family.
Both Ripa and Consuelos will executive produce the series along with writer Isaac Gonzalez and Albert Bianchini.
