ABC has signed Sonnenfeld, who also directed Men in Black and The Addams Family, to a new two-year deal, one that gives him a first look at ABC's upcoming projects and the opportunity to direct pilots. One such project that's caught his eye is a yet-untitled series about a harried mother who finds a suit that grants her superpowers, a la The Greatest American Hero. The show will be a half-hour sitcom, and the current plan is for Sonnenfeld to not only produce, but direct the pilot as well.

Dude was associated with Pushing Daisies? I'll give the pilot episode a try, at the very least. That show buys you a lot of credit with me. Of course if it sucks I'll dump it like a bad piece of pickled mango, but I'll at least give it a shot.
