After the cancellation of Larry Wilmore’s Nightly Show on Comedy Central, the comedian has signed a new deal with ABC.

It isn’t for late-night, though, as Wilmore will be in charge of developing projects, supervising, and assisting executives.

“I’m excited beyond words to be back at ABC and look forward to this creative partnership,” Wilmore said in a statement. “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.”

ABC Studios president Patrick Moran also expressed his excitement to have Wilmore with ABC. “We worked closely with Larry while we were developing Black-ish and are looking forward to what’s coming next from this incredibly talented writer/producer,” Moran said in a statement.
