ABC has bought the script for producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s half-hour single-camera comedy “Bagel Nation” about a Lebanese father who buys a Jewish deli, even though he’s not Jewish.

The show is inspired by writer Sheri Elwood’s real-life childhood. The family lives above and runs the deli.

Elwood also executive produces, along with Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. KristieAnne Reed is a co-executive producer.

It comes from Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Bruckheimer is the prolific producer of everything from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies to the “CSI” dramas on CBS — and tons of other movies and TV shows.
