Ed O'Neill returns to TV with ABC's 'American Family'

Posted on

Ed O’Neill, who memorably played lazy shoe-salesman dad Al Bundy in Fox’s Married With Children, will return to network TV with the ABC half-hour pilot An American Family. The single-camera sitcom will revolve around three families. O’Neill plays a 60-year-old stepdad married to a Latina (Sofia Vergara) 30 years his junior, while Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler are signed on to play another family: a gay couple who have adopted a Vietnamese baby.
