Book by '$#*! My Dad Says' Writer Being Adapted for TV -- Project Promises More Wisdom From the Author's Outrageous Dad THR
The book "I Suck at Girls," by "$#*! My Dad Says" writer Justin Halpern, is being adapted for television, with "Cougar Town" co-creator Bill Lawrence working on the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed.
Fox has given the half-hour comedy a pilot production commitment, and Lawrence, along with Jeff Ingold, president of Lawrence’s Doozer, will executive produce. Halpern will write and executive produce along with Patrick Schumacker, who helped create the TV version of "$#*! My Dad Says," the story notes.
The project, from Warner Bros. Television, is about a boy who comes of age during a time before Google, and like Halpern's previous project, features advice from his outrageous father. Samuel Halpern, a retired radiologist, became a cultural icon in his own right for his blunt, often profane words of wisdom, showcased in the CBS comedy "$#*! My Dad Says.”
