Two actor-musicians, rocker Jack Black and country star Dwight Yoakam, have teamed to executive produce Belles & Whistles, a single-camera comedy with music elements, which has been set up at Fox. 20th Century Fox TV and Black’s Electric Dynamite are producing.
Written/executive produced by Alex McAulay (Eastbound and Down), Belles & Whistles centers on an unfulfilled father who, when fired from his comfortable tech job in Silicon Valley, decides to move his dysfunctional family to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue his lifelong dream of music stardom. Electric Dynamite’s Spencer Berman also executive produces.
McAulay, repped by WME and Writ Large, wrote the Black List script Flower, which is set up at Rough House. Black next will star in Sony’s Goosebumps, return for DreamWorks Animation’s KungFu Panda 3, and film season two of HBO comedy The Brink. Black and Electric Dynamite are repped by WME and attorney Warren Dern. Yoakam is repped by WME, ROAR and Jackaway Tyerman.
