DirecTV will be adapting Peter Ackerman‘s play Things You Shouldn’t Say Past Midnight as its first original comedy series. The satcaster has given a 10-episode order to the project, which will start filming in May for a premiere on Audience Network later this year. This is DirecTV’s third original series, following dramas Rogue, which returns for Season 2 next month, and Full Circle, which was based on Neil LaBute scripts. Penned by Ackerman, Things You Shouldn’t Say is set in Los Angeles and examines a variety of modern-day relationships through the conceit that nothing good happens after midnight. It comes from DirecTV’s go-to producer, Nick Hamm of Momentum TV, who also was involved in Rogue and Full Circle.
