Johnny Knoxville Is Producing a ‘Hawaiian Dick’ TV Adaptation for NBC


NBC has put a new comedy into development from executive producer Johnny Knoxville. According to Variety, the network is working on an hourlong series based on the Hawaiian Dick graphic novels by B. Clay Moore and Steven Griffin. Written by Paul Lovett and David Elliott (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra), the series will center on “a Stateside cop named Byrd who is exiled to Hawaii and finds himself immersed in a dark and dangerous paradise. Tropical noir mixes with procedural elements, resulting in both humor and the supernatural.”
