Bryan Cranston has a new comedy headed to Amazon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming network has given a six-episode series order to a comedy created by Cranston and Greg Mottola called The Dangerous Book for Boys. The half-hour comedy was originally in development at NBC back in 2014 and is based on the 2012 book of the same name by brothers Conn and Hal Iggulden. Here’s the logline for the Amazon show:
Wyatt and his brothers are coming to terms with the death of their dad, Patrick, a wonderful, whimsical inventor who touched the lives of everyone who knew him. Patrick leaves the boys with a copy of The Dangerous Book for Boys, and the how-to book inspires fantasies for Wyatt. While in his fantasy world, he reconnects with his father and learns life skills that help him navigate real life.
The show will begin production in New York this summer.
