ABC Buys Comedies from Ben Stiller Deadline
ABC has bought two comedies from Ben Stiller, with one of them based on his life, reports Deadline.com. The comedies, from Stiller's Red Hour Television, are "Please Knock" and "The Notorious Mollie Flowers," the story notes. Both are produced by ABC Studios.
"Please Knock" is roughly based on Stiller's life, and features an A-list actor who worries he's losing touch with his family and reality. He moves back to the building in NYC where he grew up and where his parents still live.
"Mollie Flowers" is about a do-gooder who is exonerated after being falsely accused of a crime, and decides to start focusing on herself for a change, the story notes.
