Fox TV Buys Comedy Based on Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo Going to College
While FX has Denis Leary’s Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll already ordered to series and Showtime has ordered a pilot of Cameron Crowe’s Roadies, this wave of rock sitcoms doesn’t stop with those two.
Fox TV has gotten on board with this trend and has just bought a project from Psych’s Steve Franks and Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo. It will be based on Cuomo’s life going from rock stardom back to college of his own volition.
If this goes to series, it will be a great accompaniment to the web series that follows a Weezer cover band called The Undone Sweaters.
20th Century Fox TV Gives Julius Sharpe Two Year Overall Deal
As overall deals for networks are starting to come in, Fox has made a nice move by giving one of their long time writers Julius Sharpe, also a funny stand-up, an overall deal.
You’ve probably enjoyed Sharpe’s work at Family Guy and The Cleveland Show and hopefully, now you’ll see his name in a bigger capacity over at Fox with shows he’s developing.
