Cordelia - Cuban King Lear Drama from Milo Ventimiglia + Comedies in Development at FOX



The Great Unknowns - Live Comedy in Development at FOX

Fox is doubling its efforts to launch a live multi-camera comedy series last season by buying a second such project. The network has given a script commitment to The Great Unknowns, from comedy writer-producer Adam Barr and the Jackal Group, Gail Berman’s joint venture with Fox Networks Group.

Written by Barr, The Great Unknown is a live multi-cam comedy about siblings Tommy and Debbie Stefano, whose parents force them to grow up and find their own place to live, as well as real careers and relationships. Barr is executive producing with the Jackal Group’s Gail Berman and Joe Earley, as well as actress-writer Heather Anne Campbell who comes from UCB and has an extensive improv background which she will likely tap into for The Great Unknown.

Cordelia - Cuban King Lear Adaptation + The End - Family Comedy in Development at FOX

This Is Us star Milo Ventimiglia and his longtime producing partner Russ Cundiff have sold three projects to Fox via their DiVide Pictures — drama Cordelia, a Latino take on King Lear from Ice co-creator Robert Munic; The End, a multi-camera comedy from Boy Meets World and Girl Meets World co-creator Michael Jacobs; and Committed, a reality series project about couples from David Leepson (Rich Kids Of Beverly Hills)

Written/executive produced By Robert Munic, Cordelia is a modern re-telling of the King Lear story set to the back drop of a strong Cuban family and the three sisters running the scene in Miami. Told through the eyes of the one daughter who truly loved her father, Cordelia delves into a world of secrets, lies and complex family bonds that are constantly tested but ultimately never broken.

Written/executive produced by Michael Jacobs, The End is a multi-camera, multi-generational comedy about a wildly mismatched couple, Joey and Marla, who have uniquely flawed children and Marla’s divorced parents living with them. They are possibly the worst family in the world. But in spite of their differences, Joey and Marla come to realize it’s possible they’re in love. Maybe that’s enough to save them all.
