Amazon Orders “Highston” Comedy Pilot From Bob Nelson

(via Deadline)

Screenwriter Bob Nelson is making the jump from indie hit Nebraska to the open TV pastures of Amazon.

Amazon Studios is continuing to rack up their talent pool that already includes Jill Soloway, Woody Allen, and now Nelson.

Not only is Nelson writing “Highston”, but the ever-industrious and mischievous Sacha Baron Cohen will be producing it, and the Little Miss Sunshine team of Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris are set to direct.

Needless to say, we’re incredibly intrigued to see how all these folks mesh together on a coming-of-age comedy online.
