By

HBO has a new comedy in the works. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network is developing a half-hour comedy called Brotherhood from Hand to God playwright Robert Askins. Based on Askins’s experience in a “rebel secret society” at Baylor University, the series will be set at “the largest Baptist university in the world where a young man joins a secret organization that has two goals: party harder than anyone else and write the funniest, most incisive campus humor magazine in history.” Askins will also co-executive produce alongside Man Seeking Woman’s Jonathan Krisel, who is attached to direct should the project land a pilot order. According to THR, the series was pitched as “Animal House set at a conservative college and told from the perspective of the administration and the secret society.”
