HBO Developing Comedy Centered Secret Humor Magazine at a Baptist University from Robert Askins, “Brotherhood”
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
Sounds like it fit right in next to Veep and Silicon Valley.
All of the high concept comedy over at HBO largely shows the shaky inner-workings of giant, taken-for-granted institutions like the office of Vice President or the tech sector.
Their latest addition to their development slate, Brotherhood, seems to follow suit by following a secret, rebellious organization at a Baptist university bent on partying and circulating their humor magazine. The project comes from acclaimed playwright of Hand to God, Robert Askins and will be directed by Jonathan Krisel whose work you’ve seen on Portlandia and Man Seeking Woman.
Hopefully, we’ll see if it makes it to pilot or series soon.
