Scott Baio is heading back to the small screen in Nickelodeon’s first original comedy pilot for Nick at Nite, Daddy’s Home.

The multi-camera, half-hour comedy follows actor David Hobbs (Baio) who, after ten years of starring as America’s favorite TV dad, becomes a stay-at-home father to honor the deal he made with his soap star wife so that she may return to the limelight.

The project is helmed by executive producers Eric Bischoff and Jason Hervey through their production company Bischoff Hervey Entertainment, along with Baio himself.  Hervey and Baio previously collaborated on three unscripted series including Scott Baio is 45 and Single, Scott Baio is 46 and Pregnant, and Confessions of a Teen Idol.

Known for his role as Chachi Arcola on the comedy series Happy Days, followed by a starring role in the spin-off series Joanie Loves Chachi. Baio also starred in his own 1980s sitcom, Charles in Charge.

The series will air alongside other series in Nick’s nighttime programming block like Home Improvement, Everybody Hates Chris, Friends, George Lopez and Family Matters.
