TV: All the Way Home

David Giffels is adapting his 2009 memoir All the Way Home: Building a Family in a Falling-Down House into a half-hour series, Deadline reported. Giffels, who wrote on MTV's Beavis and Butt-Head, and Lee Kirk, who directed the film Ordinary World, will create the series, known as Wreckless. Steve Basilone, a co-exec producer on ABC's The Goldbergs, is the showrunner. Process Media's Tim Perell will executive produce alongside Basilone and Brad Petrigala of Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

"The book tells the real-life story of how my wife Gina and I started our family together, by moving into a condemned mansion in Akron, Ohio, and trying to turn it into our home," Giffels said. "It's a crazy love story filled with angry raccoons, flying chainsaws, and collapsing floors."

Perell added, "I couldn't put this book down when I read it. It has the construct of The Money Pit with the razor-sharp relationship humor of Catastrophe and all the heart of Ted Lasso."
