John Stamos to Play a Grandfather in New Fox Sitcom

John Stamos is about to be everywhere. Not only is he signed on to co-star in and executive produce Netflix' "Full House" revival, but now he's starring in a brand new show on Fox.

"Grandfathered" stars 51-year-old Stamos as a longtime bachelor whose life is upended when he discovers he not only has a son named Gerald ("Drake & Josh's" Josh Peck) but also a two-year old granddaughter, thanks to Gerald's one-night stand with the sexy Vanessa (Christina Milian).

The single-camera comedy also stars Paget Brewster, Kelly Jenrette and Ravi Patel, and comes from executive producers Danny Chum, Stamos, and "Galavant's" Dan Fogelman.
