The site reports that the series will chronicle the misadventures of two streetwise brothers, Del (Leguizamo) and Rodney, and their aging grandfather as they concoct outrageous, morally questionable get-rich-quick schemes.
The actor recently signed a development deal with ABC, which also includes the possibility of creating a series based on Leguizamo's life.
Leguizamo won the Drama Desk for Ghetto Klown, which he is currently touring. His previous shows include Mambo Mouth, Spic-O-Rama, Freak, and Sexaholix... A Love Story, and his many other stage credits include A Midsummer Night's Dream and La Puta Vida. He won an Emmy Award for the televised version of Freak on HBO.
