David Talbert isn't afraid of a long-term commitment with ABC. According to Variety, Talbert has been signed to a script deal for an untitled marriage comedy for ABC.

Talbert, who most recently directed First Sunday, is writing the script based off the early years of his own marriage and his family's history of divorce.

"I have the distinction of being en route to becoming the only person in my family to stay married to the same person," he said. "It's all about one man's mission in life to stay married and break the family curse of divorce."

Talbert is also a playwright, with a dozen plays under his belt and BET has recently started airing his plays, starting with The Fabric of a Man.
