More than 10 years after "Home Improvement" went off the air, it seems Tim Allen is already back in nesting mode. The comedian is reportedly returning to ABC in a new family-themed comedy.
According to Deadline.com, the network has ordered a pilot for "Man Up," a half-hour family show in which 57-year-old Allen would play "a guy fighting for his manhood in a world of women."
Following the eight-season run of the hugely popular "Home Improvement," the funnyman went on to star in films such as "The Shaggy Dog," "Wild Hogs" and the blockbuster "Toy Story 3."
However, Deadline.com reports that the Golden Globe winner has been eyeing a return to television for quite some time and has taken meetings with writers in recent months.
