Writer A.J. Jacobs’ "My Life as an Experiment" has been optioned by Reveille and Jack Black’s Electric Dynamite Prods. for a possible half-hour comedy series, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
The book follows Jacobs’ efforts to become a better person through a series of exercises such as practicing radical honesty and hiring Indian assistants to outsource some of his tasks.
"I’m being radically honest when I say I’m thrilled to be working with Reveille and Jack Black, and I’m looking forward to helping them transform these stories from my life into a series,” Jacobs said.
The project, which is searching for a writer to adapt the book, marks one of the first for Black’s two-year exclusive production agreement with Reveille, Andreeva writes.
