Eric Stonestreet is stepping behind the camera for Big Stop, a comedy he’s set to produce for ABC.

Big Stop will be a multi-camera comedy that takes place at a Kansas truck stop. Stonestreet currently stars as Cam on ABC’s Modern Family and said that show is what made him want to start producing.

“When my great days on the show end,” Stonestreet told Deadline“I’d like to have the opportunity to continue to create and produce and get a show on the air one day that is hopefully as good as Modern Family.

Jerry Collins, who wrote for The Bernie Mac Show, is also set to executive produce.
