NBC Developing Provocatively Titled Comedy Deadline
NBC has bought a comedy project with a title that is likely to draw attention. Deadline.com reports that the network is developing "My Parents Are Too F**king Happy," from actress Krysten Ritter and feature writer Heather Hach.
Ritter knows the territory when it comes to TV titles that push the envelope, having starred in ABC's "Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23."
The new project is produced by Universal TV and written by Hach, who has worked on films including "Freaky Friday" and "What to Expect When You're Expecting." It comes from Ritter's Silent Machine Entertainment as part of its first-look deal with the studio, the story notes.
The project is about three siblings with relationship troubles who are traumatized by their parents' perfect marriage.
Ritter, who also appeared on AMC's "Breaking Bad," has been cast in the NBC comedy pilot "Assistance," which Deadline says is still in contention.
