Kelsey Grammer has nailed a pilot commitment from ABC for a half-hour, multicamera comedy starring Grammer as a corporate tycoon who reconnects with his family after being downsized out of his powerful job.

According to Variety, Everybody Loves Raymond alum Tucker Cawley is penning the pilot, which will come from Tom Werner's Good Humor TV and Warner Bros. TV.

The new project comes just months after ABC passed on Grammer's last comedy in development at the network, an adaptation of the Britcom Roman's Empire.
