On the heels of Elizabeth Banks making her feature directorial debut with the upcoming sequel Pitch Perfect 2, the actress is setting her sights on television. ABC has put in development The Greater Good, a single-camera comedy, which Banks is executive producing and attached to direct in what would be her TV directing gig. Written by Miss Guided creator Caroline Williams, The Greater Good is described as comedic X-Files, a relationship/workplace comedy set in the world of conspiracy theories. The project hails from 20th Century Fox TV and Banks and Handelman’s Brownstone Prods. Williams, Banks and Handelman executive produce.
Via Brownstone Prods., Banks and Handelman also produce the Pitch Perfect movie franchise, in which Banks co-stars. Banks has extensive single-camera comedy experience on the acting side with high-profile recurring roles on Scrubs and Emmy-winning 30 Rock and Modern Family. She will next be seen reprising her role in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. Banks is repped by UTA, Untitled and Ziffren; Williams, who recently worked on Arrested Development, is with UTA, 3 Arts and Sloane Offer.
