Larry Wilmore signs deal with ABC, network chants "Larry! Larry! Larry!"

Just like Robin Thede has moved on, so too has Larry Wilmore. After The Nightly Show's unceremonious ending, the host/producer has signed a development deal with ABC (which is also the same network that airs one of his other produced shows Blackish). The pact is multi-year and should stimulate a bunch of projects and allow for Wilmore to supervise others while also finding new talent for ABC Studios. The Hollywood Reporter writes that Wilmore is very excited to continue his work with ABC: "Disney took a chance on me as a young writer years ago and so I'm thrilled to return to the Mouse House. I hope my room still looks the same."
