Could Damon Wayans Jr. be Fox’s New Guy? Quite possibly.

The Happy Endings alum — who is in the midst of shooting a major Season 3 arc on New Girl — is poised to stay in the Fox family now that the network has given a pilot-production committment to Man/Child, a new comedy project set to be directed by Modern Family co-executive producer Jason Winer and written by Reed Agnew and Eli Jorne, the showrunners from FX’s canine comedy Wilfred.

Man/Child is about a pair of single dads who become roommates and “struggle to find the balance between being responsible parents and debaucherous bachelors.”
