Husband-and-wife producing duo Adam and Naomi Scott have sold two comedy projects, one to HBO and one to NBC, through their Gettin’ Rad Productions. Both hail from Universal TV where Gettin’ Rad is under a first-look deal.
HBO has bought Deep S.I.X. with Wet Hot American Summer scribe Anthony King attached to write. Deep S.I.X. follows a rag-tag Homeland security team that no one believes in as they investigate paranormal threats that no one believes in.
NBC has put in development Donuthead, a single-camera comedy set in the world of an anxiety-ridden 11-year old boy and his single mother. The series, written by Irene Mecchi (Brave, The Lion King) and Bridget Terry will feature a unique visual style to illustrate this kid’s one-of-a-kind imagination.
The project is somewhat reminiscent to ABC’s Imaginary Friend, a comedy blending live-action and CGI animation from Oscar-winning Disney feature animator Patrick Osborne and The Goldbergs team of Adam F. Goldberg and Happy Madison.
Gettin’ Rad in February sold Buds to NBC with writer/comic Joe Mande (Parks & Recreation). The comedy revolves around the day-to-day operations of a marijuana dispensary in Denver, Colorado. The duo also is behind The Overnight, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and are in post on their second feature Other People, written/directed by Chris Kelly and starring Jesse Plemons and Molly Shannon.
As an actor,Scott will next be seen in Universal and Legendary’s Krampus and also recently wrapped production on the upcoming comedy My Blind Brother. Gettin’ Rad/Adam Scott is repped by WME, Rise Management and Wendy Heller Law. King is repped by WME, Mosaic and Lev Ginsburg. Mecchi is repped by WME.
