*Damon Wayans will return to ABC as the executive producer and star of "Never Better," a comedy pilot from the network's production company, ABC Studios.
The show revolves around a recovering alcoholic who's determined to be a good husband and father despite his many missteps.
The single-camera project is based on a British series that recently made its debut on BBC2. The property had been given a cast-contingency order from ABC, but Wayans' commitment makes it a go pilot for the network, reports Variety.
Wayans previously starred on ABC in the comedy "My Wife and Kids," which was also produced through ABC Studios and lasted from 2001 through 2005.
