IFC Developing Hockey Comedy ‘Uncle Chubby’ with Denis Leary’s Apostle
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
We’d say that, by now, comedy has worked out for IFC. So, they’re now beefing up their development slate for this upcoming pilot season with a new scripted project from Denis Leary’s company Apostle.
Following with Apostle’s success with Maron at the network, the project, Uncle Chubby, follows the path of an intramural hockey team in an attempt to win a league title.
No talent is currently attached, but hopefully Liev Schrieber’s character from Goon can make a cameo.
