NBC has put in development Mail Order Family, a half-hour comedy from Superstore writer-producer Jackie Clarke, director-executive producer Ruben Fleischer and executive producer David Bernad. Universal TV, where Fleischer is under an overall deal, is the studio.
Written and executive produced by Clarke, Mail Order Family is loosely based on Clarke’s family. It follows a widowed single father who orders a mail-order bride from the Philippines to help raise his two preteen daughters.
Fleischer, who helmed the pilot for Superstore, which just received a full-season Season 2 order, will direct and executive produce with Bernad via their shingle the District. Josh Bycel and Jonathan Fener (American Dad!) also will executive produce as part of their overall deal with Universal TV.
In addition to Superstore at NBC, Fleischer and Bernad executive produce the Freeform pilot Issues, created by Sarah Watson.
Clarke is repped by UTA and attorney Patti Felker. Bycel and Fener are repped by UTA. Fleischer and Bernad are with CAA and Management 360.
