Nickelodeon in the US has greenlit a live-action comedy series in which a family moves into a house already being lived in by ghosts.

The Haunted Hathaways (20x30′) is written by Robert Peacock, who also wrote a pilot of the show for Nick last summer.

It stars Ginifer King, Amber Montana, Breanna Yde as the human family, with Chico Benymon, Curtis Harris and Lil’ P-Nut playing the three ghosts, and Nick has confirmed it’s now taking the pilot to series, as first reported by Deadline.

Another live-action series set for 2013 on Nick is Sam & Cat (20x30′), which was picked up for a full series towards the end of last year.
