NBC is working on a comedy project from Jason Katims’ True Jack Productions about two 30-something couples who decide to take out a mortgage together on a Brooklyn brownstone, reports Deadline.com.
The project, “The Walk-Up,” is based on an article on TheAtlantic.com called “Two Couples, One Mortgage,” about the creation of what the piece calls a “modern urban family.”
The project will be written by Julia Brownell of Katims’ “Parenthood,” a playwright who also has worked on “Hung” and “Smash.”
“Taking a stab at a multicamera comedy is something Katims and Brownell have long been looking to do because of their shared theater roots,” the story notes. “This marks True Jack’s third sale so far this season, along with the Sarah Watson medical drama, which has a put pilot commitment at CBS, and Stu Zicherman’s romantic comedy at Showtime.”
