*The producer behind the “Ride Along” and “Think Like a Man” franchises has turned toward the small screen for his next project.

NBC has put in development “Like Father, Like Son,” a half-hour comedy from Will Packer Productions and Universal TV, where Packer’s company has a first-look deal, reports Deadline.com.

“Like Father, Like Son” is inspired by actual events from Packer’s life. It centers on a recently divorced man in his early thirties who is just starting to enjoy the benefits of being young, successful and single when he learns he has a fifteen-year-old son from a one-night-stand he had in college.

Packer and Pennie executive produce, with Will Packer Productions head of TV Korin Huggins co-executive producing.
