TBS has passed on the untitled comedy pilot from writer Matt Fogel (Bob: The Musical) and writer-director Todd Strauss-Schulson (The Final Girls). The project’s studio, Legendary TV, is currently shopping it to other outlets.
As a new generation of women becomes more independent and assertive, their male counterparts are becoming more self-aware and sensitive. The untitled half-hour show is about two of those men – Todd (played by Adam Shapiro) and Fogel (Jack Carpenter) who are the kind of guys who talk about their feelings, frequent therapy sessions and dabble with mobile phone meditation apps. They are searching Los Angeles for love, a good “SuperSoul Sunday” viewing party and a way to get off the Raya waiting list.
Shenaz Treasury co-stars in the pilot, which was written by longtime best friends Fogel and Strauss-Schulson inspired by their own lives as sensitive, modern men. The two executive produce with Ken Franchi and Ben Stiller’s Red Hour.
