EXCLUSIVE: Comedy Central has put in development River Dogs, a comedy written, executive produced by and starring actress-comedian Andrea Savage (Dinner For Schmucks). Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Prods, River Dogs follows an odd group of young poker pros who are dying to prove to the world that they are legitimate “athletes,” but the very thing that makes them great at poker makes them totally awkward in real life. The project reunites Savage with Gary Sanchez — she is probably best known for her role in the company’s comedy feature Step Brothers. Savage, repped by UTA and Mosaic, sold a comedy project to ABC through Sony TV and Fanfare earlier this season and will next be seen in You’re Not You opposite Hilary Swank and Emmy Rossum.
