Lonely Island Is Developing Fox Comedies Starring Danny Pudi, Neal Brennan, and Andre Hyland
Back in January, SNL alums Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone signed a deal with Fox to develop new shows, and today Deadline reports that they have three potential series in development. The trio’s alternative comedy development company, called Party Over Here, announced the projects currently in production including a sci-fi comedy starring Danny Pudi, a mockumentary show hosted by Neal Brennan, and a hidden camera show from comedian Andrew Hyland. No word yet whether the shows will premiere on Fox, FX, FXX, or only on streaming services like Hulu and Roku. Here’s the breakdown of all three shows:
THE TYLER ZONE
When Tyler (Danny Pudi) moves to a new town, he finds himself in the middle of a series of supernatural occurrences. Are they really happening, or is it all in his head? Music video and commercial director Keith Schofield wrote and directed this surreal sci-fi comedy.
HOME FOR THE WEEKEND
Hosted by comedian Neal Brennan (Chappelle’s Show), HOME FOR THE WEEKEND is a mockumentary-style half-hour comedy following a celebrity’s return trip to his or her hometown, where pleasant strolls down memory lane can take unexpected turns and reveal surprising backstories about high-profile stars. The first episode in production features The Lonely Island’s Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone back in Berkeley, CA, where they grew up.
TOPICS WITH ANDRE HYLAND
Comedian Andre Hyland (Hollywood & Hyland) morphs into his uniquely hilarious band of characters and interacts with an unsuspecting public. Hyland writes, directs and stars in this outrageous show.
