John Early and Kate Berlant Developing Hulu Comedy ‘This Is Heaven’

early_berlantFrequent collaborators John Early and Kate Berlant have a new show in development at Hulu. According to Deadline, the streaming network has ordered a pilot presentation for a comedy written by and starring the duo called This Is Heaven with Lorene Scafaria (New Girl) attached to direct and John Levenstein (Arrested Development, Kroll Show) attached to executive produce alongside Early and Berlant. The show is described as “Berlant and Early’s take on a classic half-hour comedy about two best friends Roger and Eva, drawn on the dynamic they’ve developed through their numerous collaborations.”

“We have been dreaming about making this show since the day we met, and we couldn’t be more eager to share it with the world,” said Berlant and Early on the news. “It’s an honor and a privilege to be in the trades today. Though we will not tweet the link due to superstition, those who fail to widely circulate the announcement will be punished to the full extent of the law. We hope to see you soon!”

Berlant and Early starred in their own Vimeo series 555 earlier this year and were also featured in Netflix’s 2016 series The Characters. If you haven’t watched their appearance on The Tonight Show from back in February, do yourself a favor and watch the whole thing below:
