Ed Helms and ‘Colbert Report’s Max Werner Developing ‘Weird Like Us’ at Fox


Ed Helms and former Colbert Report writer Max Werner have sold a single-cam comedy to Fox. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has given a script commitment to Weird Like Us, a comedy about “a pair of biodiesel-driving, backyard beekeeping, counterculture rebels who face a family crisis when their own children rebel — by going mainstream.” Werner – who also wrote 2012’s Fun Size and episodes of Amazon’s new show Red Oaks – will write, and Helms is onboard as an executive producer.
