ABC Buys ‘East WillyB’ Comedy Based On Web Series From Kronicle Media

ABC has put in development East WillyB, a half-hour comedy based on the indie web series created by Julia Ahumada Grob and Yamin Segal from Korin Williams and Monique Nash’s Kronicle Media and ABC Studios.

Written by Grob and Segal, East WillyB is an ensemble comedy that revolves around a truly unconventional family, dysfunctional neighbors who populate the last hold-out dive bar in gentrified Brooklyn. Together they’ll face life’s challenges — from love, friendship, and legacy, to family and change — realizing they can only do it if they lean on each other; their chosen family.

Described as an American story told through the voices and experiences of Latinos, the critically praised East WillyB web series, which takes on issues facing the Latino population, was named the “Latino show for the next generation” by the New York Times.

Segal and Grob will executive produce the potential series alongside Kronicle Media’s Williams and Nash.
