After a decade in features, Spin City writer-producer Jeff Lowell is returning to television with a single-camera comedy at NBC produced by ABC Studios and Brillstein Entertainment. The untitled project, which has received a script order, is a romantic comedy about a couple from the point of view of the man and the woman whose unspoken thoughts we can hear via voiceover. “It’s a little bit like the balcony scene from Annie Hall,” Lowell said, adding that he got the idea for the project from reflecting on his relationship with his wife — together since they were 15-years-old. “The secret to happiness and a strong marriage is unexpressed thoughts,” he said. Lowell and his family left Hollywood after his short stint on NBC’s Inside Schwartz in 2001 and moved to Charlottesville, VA. He started writing movies and has had 3 produced: John Tucker Must Die, Over Her Dead Body and Hotel for Dogs. “I never thought I’d go back but I started missing television,” UTA-repped Lowell said.
