Mike Epps has been tapped for the lead role in ABC’s comedy pilot, “Uncle Buck,” based on the classic 1989 film starring John Candy.

In the Will Packer-produced remix of “Uncle Buck,” Epps will play Buck Russell, a childish man who learns how to be an adult by taking care of his brother Will’s kids in a very childish way.

The talented and beautiful Nia Long will play Will’s strong-willed and smart wife.

ABC is very excited about bringing another African American family comedy to the network to accompany their hit series, “Black-ish.”

Congratulations to Mike Epps and Nia Long.

I’ll keep you posted when a premiere date is announced.
