Fox Developing ‘Bastards’ Siblings Comedy from Ed Weeks and ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Writers

ed-weeksIndependence Day: Resurgence writers Nicholas Wright and James A. Woods have teamed up with Mindy Projects Ed Weeks for a new comedy in the works at Fox. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has given a put-pilot commitment to a single-cam family comedy from the trio called Bastards. The show centers on “a philandering game show host who dies and leaves his mansion to his three children — each of whom thought they were an only child. They ultimately decide to live together and form a new unconventional family.” James Griffiths (Black-ish, Wrecked, The Mayor) will direct and serve as executive producer.
