Awkward Family Photos to be Developed as ABC TV Series

Following  S*** My Dad Says‘ epic blog-to-book-to-TV-show journey, ABC and Sony Pictures TV will develop a project for a half-hour show based on Awkward Family Photos by Mike Bender and Doug Chernack.

Reuters has more: “Contractually, ABC’s show will be based upon the Awkward Family Photos book, though the print version and year-old Web site … contain the same content — funny, embarrassing and, yes, awkward family portraits that have been submitted by readers. How the concept will translate to series TV is unclear.”

Back in July, we reported that bloggers Bender and Chernack sold two more books from the popular site to Three Rivers Press–months after the launch of the first Awkward Family Photos book.
