Veteran comedy writer David Hemingson has been named executive producer/co-showrunner on Fox’s newly picked up comedy series Traffic Light alongside the project’s writer/executive producer Bob Fisher. Hemingson had already been involved in the pilot and key meetings leading to Traffic Light’s series pickup yesterday. Based on an Israeli format, Traffic Light revolves around three male friends. In fact, I hear it was the strong resemblance between that relationship and Fisher’s real-life close friendship with Hemingson and fellow comedy writer Tad Quill that prompted him to take on Traffic Light. Also executive producing Traffic Light are Adir Miller, Avi Nir, Ran Telem and Elad Kuperman. Hemingson has been at 20th TV for awhile. He most recently created and executive produced the studio’s dramedy series for ABC The Deep End. When that show was canceled, he went over to Traffic Light.
