Forrester is slated to direct the pilot and serve as showrunner. Avalon Television (Comedy Central’s Workaholics) is producing. Forrester, whose credits also include The Simpsons and King of the Kill, and Braunger are repped by UTA. Braunger, a frequent panel guest on Chelsea Lately, is also with Avalon Management.
