Bernie Mac is reuniting with Fox, signing on to star in a new comedy from The Drew Carey Show creator Bruce Helford, according to Variety.

The half-hour series (believed to be seven episodes), tentatively titled Starting Under, comes from Warner Bros. TV.

The sitcom will star Mac as a large, opinionated guy (not unlike himself in that respect) who winds up divorced and living with his introverted twentysomething son. What's more, he also winds up working for his son.

Andy Ackerman is set as a director-exec producer on the pilot; Mac will serve as a producer.
