Mitch Hurwitz to Direct Human Guinea Pig Comedy

Don't worry: It's a film about human medical guinea pigs, not human-guinea pig hybrids created by medicine. Your screenplay is safe. The Arrested Development creator has signed on to direct Fox 2000’s Guinea Pigging based on Professor Carl Elliott's 2008 New Yorker article. Writers Lennon and Garant allegedly pitched a “sophisticated comedy about a human drug-test subject.” Not too sophisticated, we hope. These guys wrote Reno 911!: Miami. Let’s not waste their time or talent.
