Adam Pally might get his own leading role on Fox. According to Deadline, the Happy Endings and Mindy Project alum has signed on to star in Making History, a Fox pilot written by Julius Sharpe (Family Guy, Cristela, The Grinder) and produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The project “revolves around three unlikely friends who find an even less likely way to travel through time, irreversibly complicating their personal lives in 2016.” Here’s more on Pally’s character from Deadline:
It centers on Dan, a nerdy computer science professor at a small college and the “failure” of an accomplished family, who is unpopular with both students and colleagues on campus, where his extreme intelligence comes off as odd. Dan invented time travel, hoping to get a fresh start and meet less shallow people. We see two Dans – the “nerd rage” guy having a hard time in the present, and the cooler more carefree guy in the past.
