Denis Leary Is Developing a Hockey Comedy for IFC
Denis Leary’s production company Apostle has a new comedy in development at IFC. According to Variety, the scripted comedy titled Uncle Chubby’s will follow “the exploits of a group of friends in their late 20s as they play on an ice hockey team, determined to win the adult league title despite little experience playing the sport competitively.” The script comes from Apostle’s Jim Serpico and Tom Sellitti, who also serve as producers on IFC’s other show Maron. No cast has been announced yet for the project, but Leary will serve as a co-executive producer alongside Serpico and Sellitti. Leary already has his next TV role lined up in his own FX show Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll.
