EXCLUSIVE: NBC has put in development My Parents Are Too F**king Happy, a single-camera comedy from feature writer Heather Hach (Freaky Friday, What To Expect When You’re Expecting) and Krysten Ritter‘s Silent Machine Entertainment. Written by Hach and produced by Universal TV, the project is an irreverent comedy about three romantically inept siblings who have been emotionally traumatized by their parents’ blissfully perfect marriage. This marks the second sale for Silent Machine in its first development cycle under the first-look deal the company inked with Uni TV in February, in conjunction of Ritter’s casting in the NBC/Uni TV comedy pilot Assistance, which remains in contention. Silent Machine, which Ritter runs with Lindsey Liberatore, also has an NBC bowling comedy with writer Liz Vassey and Kapital Entertainment. Hach, repped by WME, Anonymous Content and attorney Warren Dern, was nominated for a Tony Award and won the Olivier Award for writing Legally Blonde: The Musical. Ritter is repped by WME, Sanders Armstrong Caserta, TGE and attorney Dave Feldman.
