ABC May Have Shelved Uncle Buck
So, what’s going on with Uncle Buck, the new ABC comedy starring Mike Epps and Nia Long? I periodically find myself looking for the show on HULU, only to come up empty handed. I finally checked the ABC press site, but that yielded little to no answers as to why the show has yet to air, despite it being screened to members of the press months ago. After a bit more digging I discovered the show has yet to be added to ABC’s winter line-up.
Nia Long Returns to TV in the ABC Comedy “Uncle Buck”
Nia Long fans will be pleased to hear the actress will be returning to network television next month when her new ABC comedy Uncle Buck officially makes its prime time debut. I recently got the opportunity to watch the pilot episode- and while Full House style comedies usually aren’t my thing- I found Uncle Buck mostly tolerable thanks to Nia and comedian Mike Epps.
As previously reported, ABC has given the greenlight to Uncle Buck, a new half-hour comedy based off the 1989 John Candy film of the same name.
The television version stars Nia Long, James Lesure, and comedian Mike Epps as the infamously bad babysitter, Uncle Buck.
ABC plans to air the show as part of a Tuesday night comedy block that includes upcoming shows The Real O’Neals and Not Tonight.
