Robert Lopez, co-creator of hit Tony-winning musicals The Book Of Mormon and Avenue Q, is looking to add a co-creator of a TV series title to his resume. Lopez and his brother Billy Lopez haves signed a blind script deal with ABC Studios for a comedy project. The two have some TV experience. They composed music for Nickelodeon’s kids show The Wonder Pets, for which they won two Daytime Emmys, and Robert Lopez also wrote four songs for the My Musical episode of Scrubs, which was produced by ABC Studios. The gig earned him an Emmy nomination. Robert made his TV writing debut last year with an episode of Comedy Central’s long-running South Park, created/executive produced by his Book Of Mormon collaborators Matt Stone and Trey Parker.
