“Bless This Mess,” a new single-camera comedy, has been picked up to series, Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment, announced today.

The comedy, starring Lake Bell and Dax Shepard, is a co-production from 20th Century Fox Television and ABC Studios. Elizabeth Meriwether (“Single Parents,” “New Girl”) and Bell are executive producers and co-creators of the series, which will air next year on The ABC Television Network.

In “Bless This Mess,” a newlywed couple’s (Bell, Shepard) plan to ditch big city living for a simpler life in Nebraska doesn’t go as expected.

“Bell and Shepard headline a stellar cast in this hilarious take on a classic fish-out-of-water story that we found irresistible,” said Burke.
