LOS ANGELES, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Rashida Jones and Will McCormack's production company Le Train Train has sold a new restaurant dramedy to ABC.

Mix will be a 60-minute show about "a revered family restaurant at a crossroads," according to Deadline, and will focus on the realities of the multi-cultural, divorce-and-adoption-prone modern family. The show will be written by Jennifer Cecil (Private Practice), who will also serve as executive producer along with Jones and McCormack.

Mix marks Le Train Train's first hourlong sale this year -- the company sold several half-hour comedies to NBC last year. The series was conceived as a part of the company's effort to focus on projects that are true to life, which is not just funny, but also dramatic.
