TBS just ordered an untitled comedy pilot from Matt Fogel and The Final Girls director Todd Strauss-Schulson. Deadline reports that the network has picked up a comedy by the duo starring Adam Shapiro (The Mindy Project, Cristela, Sense8) and Jack Carpenter (Reckless, The Good Wife) and executive produced by Ben Stiller’s Red Hour co-written by Fogel and Strauss-Schulson. Here’s a summary of the series via Deadline:
As a new generation of women becomes more independent and assertive, their male counterparts are becoming more self-aware and sensitive. This is a show about two of those men – Todd (Shapiro) and Fogel (Carpenter) are the kind of guys who talk about their feelings, frequent therapy sessions and dabble with mobile phone meditation apps. (Todd is the more confident and aggressive of the two friends, while Fogel is the smarter and more sensitive.) They are searching Los Angeles for love, a good “SuperSoul Sunday” viewing party and a way to get off the Raya waiting list.
The Nightly Show’s Shenaz Treasury also has also been cast as Hillary, the wife of one of Todd and Fogel’s college friends. According to Deadline the pilot is untitled, but Strauss-Schulson revealed its working title to us earlier this month: Pussies. Check out the rest of the interview here.
