Ian Roberts and Jay Martel Developing ‘The Romeos’ at ABC


Key and Peele’s showrunners have a new comedy in the works at ABC. According to Deadline, Ian Roberts and Jay Martel have sold a half-hour single-cam comedy to the network called The Romeos, a buddy comedy that “revolves around two completely dissimilar 65-year-old neighbors who join forces to take full advantage of their second acts — driving each other, and everyone around them, crazy in the process.” Roberts and Martel will co-write and executive produce The Romeos, which stands for “Retired Older Men Eating Out.” The duo have another comedy in the works at TV Land called Teachers, which is set to debut in January.
