Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are writing the pilot episode, loosely based on the movie, which explores what it means to be a kid and also an adult in the 21st Century, and how confusing each part of one's life can be.
Tom Hanks played Josh in Big, a young boy who makes a wish to be big through a magical machine, only to wake up the next day as a full-grown adult. Elizabeth Perkins, Robert Loggia and John Heard co-starred in the comedy, which was directed by Penny Marshall. The film earned over $150 million worldwide during its theatrical run.
Before working together on Fox's Enlisted, Kevin Biegel co-created Cougar Town and served as a writer and producer on the ABC sitcom Scrubs. Mike Royce co-created and executive produced the TNT sitcom Men of a Certain Age, and served as executive producer/showrunner on HBO's Lucky Louie and NBC's 1600 Penn.
