The Henchman - Comedy similar to Despicable Me gets Put Pilot commitment at FOX

A high-concept comedy, which drew interest from all major broadcast networks, has landed at Fox with a put pilot commitment. Titled The Henchman, the single- camera comedy project was written on spec by Dan Kopelman (Rules Of Engagement, Malcolm In The Middle), with feature writer-director John Hamburg ( Meet The Parents franchise, I Love You, Man) set to direct and Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment executive producing. Described as a live-action, grounded comedy in the vein of Despicable Me, The Henchman centers on a henchman to the world’s worst super-villain who deals with single parenthood and impending middle age. The project is yet to be laid off at a studio, with Fox sibling 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros. TV considered strong possibilities.
