Former ‘The Wonder Years’ Child Star Fred Savage Set to Direct CBS Pilot ‘The McCarthy’s’


We all remember watching Fred Savage grow up in the series The Wonder Years. Fred has gone on to act in several other projects and work behind the camera. Deadline reported this week that Savage will be directing the new CBS pilot The McCarthy’s.


Fred Savage is set to direct the single-camera CBS/Sony TV comedy pilot The McCarthys. Written by Brian Gallivan, it revolves around an Irish-Catholic, sports-crazed Boston clan and the gay son whose greatest sin is not his sexuality but his desire to spend less time with his family. Will Gluck executive produces and Gallivan and Olive Bridge’s Richie Schwartz co-executive produce. Savage recently directed episodes of Modern Family and 2 Broke Girls.
