Phil Lord and Chris Miller Are Developing a Time Travel Comedy at Fox
Anyone getting the feeling that any sort of announcement that is time travel themed was being held up for Back To The Future Day?
Now that Phil Lord and Chris Miller have got being the Last Man on Earth covered, Lord and Miller are on to potentially make the next great time travel comedy, which has kind of intrigued Hollywood both on the big and small screen since Back To The Future, over at Fox. For reference watch Midnight in Paris, Safety Not Guaranteed, possibly even Lord and Miller’s own Clone High.
Family Guy’s Julius Sharpe has written this project, In Time, which centers on the time travel adventures of friends trying to alter their present to their benefit.
There’s a put pilot commitment right now, but we hope this turns into a series order really soon.
ABC Is Developing a Meta Family Sitcom from Modern Family’s Danny Zuker
It’s being touted as a Larry Sanders Show for family sitcoms, which is a welcome change of pace.
Veteran sitcom writer Danny Zuker not only works on Modern Family, one of the most critically and commercially successful comedies on TV right now, but is now developing his own sitcom that shows a TV family and the not-so-rosy underbelly of that same family in real life called Family Show.
While you get to see a bit of that on shows like BoJack Horseman, seeing a high concept like that at ABC, where Modern Family happens to also be, is very intriguing to see.
Luckily, it has a put pilot commitment and we’ll get to see what Zuker is cooking up.
Alec Sulkin and Julius Sharpe’s Workplace Mystery Comedy “Where Are They Now?” Sold to Fox
Sulkin and Sharpe might be on to something here.
Though the title conjures up images of all those forgotten celebrity series, Where Are They Now? will focus on the disappearance of the employees of an Internet company and the subsequent investigation. Normally, that would be the plot of one of the many hour long procedurals on TV, but this is, interestingly enough, going to be a half-hour comedy.
