Feature writer Adam Sztykiel, co-writer of Todd Phillips’ upcoming feature film laugher Due Date as well as Made of Honor, is transitioning to television. He’s got a comedy project at NBC and is writing it with veteran TV scribe Rob Cohen who is supervising the script for Man of the House, a Mr. Mom role reversal family show. This marks a rare foray into family comedy for NBC, which has been focused on workplace and romantic relationship half-hours for the past few years. In a rare cross-pollination between vertically-integrated congloms, ABC Studios and studio-based Mark Gordon Co are producing for NBC, with Gordon and Andrea Shay executive producing alongside Sztykiel and Cohen. Known mostly for its drama portfolio, which includes Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice and Army Wives, the Mark Gordon Co made comedy development a priority this season and has sold 5 half-hour projects so far: 3 to ABC, 1 to Fox, and 1 to NBC.
