    ABC orders 'Uncle Buck' series reboot with Mike Epps

    "Uncle Buck" is back.

    ABC has ordered a sitcom for the 2015-16 TV season based on the 1989 movie comedy starring John Candy.

    This time, the title role of an irresponsible but fun-loving middle-aged man who arrives to look after his brother's kids will be played by stand-up comic and "Next Friday" costar Mike Epps.

    The ABC version won't be the first time "Uncle Buck" has made it to the small screen. CBS tried a 1990 sitcom starring stand-up comic Kevin Meaney but it lasted less than a season.

    ABC will officially announce its fall schedule to advertisers next week in New York.

    So devoid of originality that they just redo a white character instead of creating something new. I thought liberals were so creative though? Even if black or fag remakes are an attempt at trolling, they've demonstrated that they're out of ideas. Why all this capitulation to small minorities? Where's the eskimo Terminator while we're at it? End rant.

    A lot of grinners.

    The family in Uncle Buck is supposed to be an angry/dysfunctional bunch. Network TV has something else in mind.

    I like it. Every time I watch that scene in Uncle Buck where Buck has bound, gagged and imprisoned that kid in the trunk of his car I think to myself 'this really seems more like something a black guy would do.'

    Finally they got the casting right. Kudos ABC.

    "SAYID SHAHIDI" sounds like something Jerry Lewis yells when he sees a ghost
