EXCLUSIVE: Steve Dildarian, creator/executive producer of The Life & Times Of Tim, has sold a new comedy project to Fox, where HBO’s cult animated comedy originated as a pilot presentation almost five years ago. Dildarian’s new comedy for Fox, The Commuters, is live-action and produced by 20th Century Fox TV and Shawn Levy and Marty Adelstein’s studio-based 21 Laps/Adelstein Prods. The Commuters, which has received a script order, is a single-camera office comedy about a diverse group of co-workers who are bonded by their daily drive from New Jersey to New York. Dildarian is writing and will executive produce with Adelstein, Levy and Becky Clements. Coincidentally, Clements’ husband, Werner Entertainment’s Mike Clements, developed and executive produced The Life & Times Of Tim with Dildarian.
The Life & Times Of Tim, on which Dildarian also voiced the title character, ended its three-year run on HBO this year. (more…)
