Half - Crowdfunded Single-Cam Comedy from Matt Angel, Greg Malins and Dan Angel in development at NBC

In a competitive situation, Half, a half-hour single-camera comedy from 22-year-old actor-writer Matt Angel, has been bought by NBC with Sony TV producing. Veteran Greg Malins (Friends) is set as showrunner, and Matt’s dad Dan Angel (TNT’s Door To Door) is attached to exec produce. Based on a true story, Half centers on the journey of Riley Young, a quirky 13-year-old conceived through artificial insemination, who convinces her dysfunctional family into embarking on a search for all of her half siblings.

In the era of crowdfunding, Matt Angel used the popular financing tool to get his project in the door. Half is based on a pilot presentation, for which Angel raised money on Kickstarter. He then optioned the short film to Sony.
