Cuba Gooding Jr. Developing Boxing Comedy With 20th TV Deadline
20th Century Fox TV is working with Cuba Gooding Jr. on a single-camera comedy about boxing, reports Deadline.com.
The project is co-created and executive produced by Gooding, along with Jason Winer’s Small Dog Picture Company, although the actor isn’t slated to star at this point. “Gooding and Small Dog are meeting with potential showrunners before taking the project -- which is not being called a sitcom -- out to networks,” the story reports.
The project focuses on a gym in a gentrified neighborhood, where people from longtime boxers to soccer moms get together to practice, the story notes.
