XBox Entertainment Studios in May ordered its first drama series, Halo, and recently greenlighted its first unscripted series with the street soccer competition Every Street United. Now I’ve learned the company is venturing into comedy with an untitled half-hour project which I hear marks the first script sale to close at xBox. Like Halo and Every Street United, the comedy too is tied to gaming, which is xBox’s core business. Written by Ian Edelman, the untitled single-comedy is about four racially diverse, ex pro skaters living together in a Los Angeles. Skate boarding is big in sports video games as is soccer. And Halo, of course, is based on the popular video game. Edelman, repped by UTA, 3 Arts and Ken Richman, serves as showrunner on the comedy, with WME-repped Rob Drydek executive producing.
