Showtime is really beefing up on the comedy side on these days. They already have Happyish recast with Steve Coogan, Cameron Crowe and his “Roadies” pilot, and Rachel Bloom starring in the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend pilot.
Now, they’re developing a corporate espionage comedy entitled Professionals from David J. Rosen and Marc Webb, who directed 500 Days of Summer. Perhaps, it’s somewhere along the lines of Michael Clayton as a comedy then?
Above all else, this might be more proof of how comedy as an entire genre is currently migrating in droves to cable and online.
