After a lengthy deal-making process, Comedy Central has formally given the green light to Duty, a half-hour pilot from a group of Happy Endings auspices — creator/executive producer David Caspe, writers Matthew and Daniel Libman, executive producer Jamie Tarses and studio Sony Pictures Television. Written/co-executive produced by brothers Matthew and Daniel Libman, Duty centers around Kyle (Mike O’Gorman), a former football star who loses everything and is forced to start anew by moving back to his hometown and taking a job on the local police force opposite his childhood best friend Lonnie (Gil Ozeri). Laura Steinel plays Jamie, Kyle’s old flame. Tarses of Fanfare and Caspe of Shark v. Bear executive produce. Caspe and Matthew have been childhood friends since elementary school, with Daniel, who is eight years younger than his brother, constantly hanging out with the older guys. Daniel went on to become his brother’s writing partner. The two worked on Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken before Caspe brought them over to ABC’s Happy Endings. O’Gorman is repped by UTA, Mosaic and attorney Lev Ginsburg.
