One of the major broadcast networks has ordered a script for a comedy from Jack Black and “30 Minutes or Less” writer Michael Diliberti, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The untitled project has landed at NBC, with Black attached as an executive producer, the story says. It’s from 20th Century Fox Television, Reveille and Electric Dynamite — Black’s company.
The story focuses on a pair of mismatched lovers whose friends all disapprove of their relationship.
Diliberti is writing the script and he, Black, Carolyn Bernstein and Todd Cohen — the latter two from Reveille — are all on board as executive producers.
