Tony Danza has reportedly joined forces with Vince Vaughn for a new ABC sitcom, tentatively titled "The Guys."

According to Variety, the series will focus on a group of three old friends who begin new chapters of their lives as they enter their golden years.

"I know I'm in popular company when I say I've been a fan of Tony's for a long time," Vaughn said. "[I] am thrilled to be collaborating with him on this really funny and relatable show."

"The Guys" isn't the only project on Danza's plate. The "Who's The Boss?" and "Taxi" vet recently signed on to Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut as Gordon-Levitt's dad alongside Julianne Moore and Scarlett Johansson in the still-untitled film.
