John Leguizamo is to appear in a new ABC sitcom loosely based on his own life.

The Ice Age actor will be joined by Family Guy's Chris Sheridan as a writer and executive producer on the pilot, according to TV Guide.

The untitled family-centred comedy is set in New York. Leguizamo stars as a family man trying to reconcile the Upper West Side lifestyle and privileges afforded by his new-found fame with his roots in the Bronx.

It was reported earlier this week that ABC had passed on Leguizamo's pilot Kings of Van Nuys - itself based on the long-running BBC comedy Only Fools and Horses - for a second time.

Leguizamo's previous movie credits also include Moulin Rouge, The Lincoln Lawyer, Carlito's Way and Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet.

The actor, who has apparently been pursuing a return to series television, made a guest appearance in My Name is Earl during 2006, and has appeared in shows ranging from ER to Miami Vice.
