Pushing Daisies may be off the air, but ABC has more plans for director and executive producer Barry Sonnenfeld, placing him at the helm of a series about a mother who finds a superpowered suit.

ABC has signed Sonnenfeld, who also directed Men in Black and The Addams Family, to a new two-year deal, one that gives him a first look at ABC's upcoming projects and the opportunity to direct pilots. One such project that's caught his eye is a yet-untitled series about a harried mother who finds a suit that grants her superpowers, a la The Greatest American Hero. The show will be a half-hour sitcom, and the current plan is for Sonnenfeld to not only produce, but direct the pilot as well.
