Jack Black, Steve Agee, and Rob Schrab Sell a Show to FX
Jack Black’s company Electric Dynamite is developing a half-hour show written by The Sarah Silverman Program‘s Steve Agee and Rob Schrab, Deadline reports. Black, Agee, and Schrab are all veterans of Channel 101, the long-running monthly short film festival that Schrab co-created with Dan Harmon. Agee and Schrab’s untitled FX series is based on Agee’s childhood, attending a military academy in the 1980s. The show is said to be similar in tone to Freaks and Geeks, which is a daunting but promising thing to compare it to. The deal with FX is only a script commitment (and not a pilot or series commitment) right now, but a coming-of-age show from these talented guys is something to look forward to if the project does make it through FX’s development gauntlet.
