Oct 23, 2012  •  Post A Comment

"New Girl" actor Jake Johnson has sold a comedy to Fox, along with writer-director Max Winkler, about a group of underdogs who — lacking any superpowers — create a version of the Avengers, Deadline.com reports.

The five characters in "The B Team" instead need to tap into their intellect to take on evil-doers, the story notes. Winkler, who directed "Ceremony," is tapped to direct the pilot, while Johnson would make his directorial debut if the project is ordered to series, the story adds.

The project is produced by 20th Century Fox TV and Imagine TV, with Johnson and Winkler co-writing.
