Great news for Greg Rikkart’s (Kevin, Y&R) husband, TV comedy writer, Robert Sudduth.

According to a report via Deadline.com, ABC is developing a new-single camera comedy written by Sudduth and from the O’Neals c0-creators, Casey Johnson and David Windsor.

But in a fun twist, the untitled series is based partly on Sudduth’s life as at the epicenter of the story is a man who, along with his husband and son, moves back in with his Mexican-American family in the heart of Texas, where he struggles to navigate his family’s deep-rooted traditions.

Sudduth was born and raised by a Latino family in Texas and is married to Daytime Emmy winner, Rikaart; and the two have a son Montgomery Argo Rikaart-Sudduth who was born just over a year ago.

Upon the news today, Rikaart took to his Twitter account and humorously tweeted: “Semi-autobiographical!? I’m not sure if I should be thrilled or terrified. Way to go, Robbie!”

Johnson and Windsor will executive produce the new comedy, with Sudduth serving as co-executive producer. ABC Studios will be the the studio behind the project.

As for Sudduth his writing talents have been part of several TV series including: Telenovela, GCB, The New Normal, The Crazy Ones, and Red Band Society. 

So what do you think of the concept of the new comedy in development which is loosely based on Sudduth and Rikaart’s life together? Comment below!

Sudduth wrote for some fairly good series. I hope this new project is not so off-putting and disappointing as O’NEALS was to me.

I can’t wait for this. Such good news, it sounds like a lot of fun. Congratulations, Robert. Now, if only we could get Greg back on Y&R full-time, life would be indeed as beautiful as you are a family.
