Trade Roundup: Sarah Silverman, Chelsea Handler


Ken Kwapis has joined Sarah Silverman’s NBC pilot as a director. Kwapis also directed the pilots for The Office and The Larry Sanders Show, so, yeah, he knows what he’s doing.

Fox bought a single-camera comedy executive produced by Chelsea Handler and starring Chelsea Lately panelist Josh Wolf as “a single father of three and a full-time stand-up comic.” What if it were just a shot-for-shot remake of Louie, but with three kids instead of two? That’d be pretty weird, huh?
