Actor/comedian John Leguizamo has been given the green light for a comedy show pilot based on his life.

The Moulin Rouge star will headline the untitled half-hour project for US network ABC, focusing on his life as a husband, father and "fish out of water" living in the exclusive Upper West Side neighbourhood in New York.

The project marks Leguizamo's latest shot with ABC - last year, his comedy pilot Kings of Van Nuys never received a series pick-up from the US network.
