In a highly competitive situation, ABC has given a cast-contingent pilot production commitment to a single-camera comedy about a hip-hop artist-turned-mayor from writer Jeremy Bronson (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon), Hamilton co-star Daveed Diggs and Jamie Tarses, Scott Stuber & Dylan Clark’s Bluegrass FanFare. ABC Studios, where Bronson and the recently launched Bluegrass FanFare are under overall deals, is the studio.
