John Stamos Is Determined to Return to TV, Books Two New Leading Roles at ABC
Is 2015 shaping up to be the year of John Stamos? The Full House actor could be a very busy man next year after booking two new TV gigs, according to Deadline.
Stamos will headline the ABC midseason series Members Only (previously known as The Club), an upstairs/downstairs drama set at a fancy Connecticut country club. He'll play the billionaire husband to Natalie Zea's Mickey, a powerful member of the family that owns the club. ABC ordered the show, from Party of Five writer Susannah Grant, straight to series in February.
Additionally, Stamos has signed on to direct and star in a comedy project about a ladies' man who discovers that he has a grown son who's nothing like him. The potential series, which is being developed by ABC Studios, would be executive-produced by Dan Fogelman (The Neighbors) and Danny Chun.
Stamos also recently filmed a guest-starring role on Fogelman's upcoming fairy-tale musical series Galavant, which will air on ABC during Once Upon a Time's winter hiatus. The actor has a long history with the network, going back to the short-lived sitcom Jake in Progress, the short-lived drama Thieves, and the beloved family comedy Full House.
In other Stamos news, word spread last week that Warner Bros. TV is considering a reboot of Full House. Stamos, who has an ownership stake in the show, has already stated that he would be involved.
Which of Stamos's current projects sounds the best?
