Nebraska writer Bob Nelson has a new coming-of-age comedy in the works at Amazon. According to Deadline, the streaming network has ordered a single-cam half-hour comedy called Highston from Nelson and produced by Sacha Baron Cohen, with Little Miss Sunshine duo Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris onboard to direct. The series follows Highston Liggetts, "a kind 19-year-old and perched on the edge of adulthood. When he encounters a world he doesn’t understand, like Elwood P. Dowd, he retreats into his vast imagination, where famous 'friends' are his companions and mentors." The cast has not yet been announced.
