AMC Developing Colonial Comedy Deadline

AMC, which has found success with period shows such as "Mad Men," is turning to Colonial times for a comedy called "We Hate Paul Revere," reports

The show tracks two brothers who live in Colonial Boston and, as the title suggests, aren't fond of the local activist Paul Revere, the story notes.

The project is written and executive produced by writer-actors Ethan Sandler and Adrian Wenner. Since meeting at Northwestern University, the pair have been performing and acting together.

The effort reflects AMC's desire to expand into comedy after building its drama series, the piece adds.
