Writers Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit (Super Fun Night) have sold a comedy project to NBC from Sony TV and Will Gluck’s studio-based Olive Bridge Entertainment. The untitled half-hour (aka Sickos), is based on Hernandez’s first few years of marriage. It follows a group of new ER residents, who not only work together, but also live together in the “doctor dorm” next door to the hospital. Hernandez and Samit will write the script and executive produce with Olive Bridge’s Will Gluck and Richie Schwartz.
Additionally, a deal is closing for Hernandez and Samit to write an untitled animated horror-comedy about the supernatural happenings in a mysterious New England town. The two will executive produce with Matt Thompson of Floyd County Prods. (Archer).
Hernandez & Samit, who wrote the Gilligan’s Island movie reboot for Warner Brothers, are repped by UTA, 3 Arts, and Jackoway Tyerman.
