NBC is developing Problem Child as a single-camera sitcom. The comedy will be based on the original Problem Child released in 1990, starring John Ritter, Jack Warden, Amy Yasbeck, Michael Richards and Michael Oliver as the title character. Originally envisioned as an R rated romp, the final film was rated PG and took a more family friendly stance on the story of an adopted 7 year-old child, compared to Damien from The Omen, who can't keep himself out of trouble. The first film was a big hit, grossing $72 million on a $10 million budget.
Problem Child was followed by the 1991 sequel Problem Child 2 and continued on in the 1995 sequel Problem Child 3. There was also a short lived animated TV series that launched in 1993.
The Problem Child TV series is being produced by Universal TV and Peter Traugott's TBD Productions. Scot Armstrong will produce alongside Peter Traugott and Rachel Kaplan.
