The producers of the new ABC series, featuring the titular character of Uncle Buck and based on the classic John Hughes film are currently producing a pilot that they hope will go to series. 

Staring in the show as Buck will be the (very funny) part player of The Hangover and stand-up comedian, Mike Epps. The pilot centres on Buck learning to grow up when he has to take care of his brother's kids. 

Epps has made several of his own stand up specials and is a very popular comedian on the US circuit. He's probably best known this side of the pond for the role of 'Black Doug' in a couple of The Hangover films.
