Ed O'Neill (Married with Children) is returning to comedy TV, starring in the ABC half-hour pilot An American Family, which also signed on Eric Stonestreet to co-star.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the single-camera project from 20th TV revolves around three families: a traditional one; another that includes a 60-year-old man (O'Neill) who becomes a stepfather after marrying a Latina (Sofia Vergara) who is 30 years his junior; and the third, a gay couple (Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson) who have adopted a Vietnamese baby.

After his starring turn on Fox's Married with Children, O'Neill did a string of dramas, most recently HBO's John from Cincinnati.
