'Ed' team prepares ABC pilot for Logue

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 5 (UPI) -- "Grounded For Life" star Donal Logue is starring in a comedy pilot for ABC being created by the duo who gave NBC "Ed."

Rob Burnett and Jon Beckerman are writing and executive producing the pilot from David Letterman's Worldwide Pants and Touchstone Television, The Hollywood Reporter said.


The untitled show was shopped to networks as "I Want to Rob Jeff Goldblum," The Reporter said. The plot centers around a group of blue-collar New Yorkers who decide to rob a celebrity.

"Ed" ran for four seasons and Burnett and Beckerman received Emmy nominations for its pilot. They both have Emmys for their work on the "Late Show with David Letterman," The Reporter noted.

Logue recently co-wrote, directed and starred in the independent film "Tennis, Anyone?" which is in limited release.
