Fox is teaming up with Enlisted producers Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce for a half-hour comedy series based on the hit 1988 movie Big starring Tom Hanks.

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.
