The Walking Dead alum Michael Cudlitz is officially heading to ABC with a brand new comedy series. He will be starring in a new series called The Kids Are Alright which has just been picked up by the network ahead of Upfronts. The series is written and executive produced by Last Man Standing showrunner Tim Doyle.

According to Deadline, the premise of the series is as follows: “The Kids Are Alright, set in the 1970s, is an ensemble comedy that follows a traditional Irish-Catholic family, the Clearys, as they navigate big and small changes during one of America’s most turbulent decades. In a working-class neighborhood outside Los Angeles, Mike and Peggy raise eight boisterous boys who live out their days with little supervision. The household is turned upside down when oldest son Lawrence returns home and announces he’s quitting the seminary to go off and “save the world.” Times are changing and this family will never be the same.”

In addition to Cudlitz, the series also stars Mary McCormack, Sam Straley, Caleb Martin Foote, Sawyer Barth, Christopher Paul Richards, Jack Gore, Andy Walken and Santino Barnard.
