Two players from NBC’s Thursday comedy block, Parks & Recreation co-star Adam Scott and Community co-executive producer Hilary Winston, have teamed to produce My Son Gomez, a new single-camera comedy project for the network. Meanwhile, actor-turned-writer Ryan Raddatz (This Might Hurt) has sold Change of Plans, a multi-camera comedy to ABC with veteran Marsh McCall as showrunner.
My Son Gomez is in the vein of About a Boy and focuses on a slick womanizing bachelor who takes in a kid with no place to go. The project was created and is being written by Winston through her overall deal at Sony TV and set up at NBC through the blind script deal Scott and his wife Naomi Scott have there. All three will executive produce the project, to which Adam Scott is not attached to star as he is committed to Parks & Rec. The comedy’s 3rd season kicks off on Jan. 20. On the feature side, Adam Scott is negotiations to join Ted, Seth MacFarlane’s comedy for Universal, while Winston is writing an adaptation of her upcoming book for Lorne Michaels and Paramount. The book, My Boyfriend Wrote a Book About Me: And Other Stories I Shouldn’t Share with Acquaintances, Co-workers, Taxi Drivers, Assistants, Job Interviewers, Bikini … and Ex/ Current/ Future Boyfriends But Have, comes out next spring. Adam and Naomi Scott are with CAA and Untitled; Wintson is with ICM.
Change of Plans, from ABC Studios and Mandeville, is about a Midwestern family running a small business out of their living room. Raddatz is with ICM and the Gotham Group, McCall is with CAA.
