Re-Training Day - Culture Clash Comedy in Development at FOX

Fox has given a script commitment plus penalty to Re-Training Day, a single-camera comedy from Uncle Buck developers/executive producers Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley, Ed Helms and Mike Falbo’s Pacific Electric Picture Co., Storied Media Group and Universal TV.

Written and executive produced by Cragg and Bradley, Re-Training Day centers around Kim, a progressive graduate from the Berkeley School of Public Policy who, after her husband moves them back to his Missouri hometown, takes a job as the director of a local career center. But when her well-meaning, liberal ideas slam up against her employees’ and clients’ conservative attitudes, she enlists the help of Dan, an out-of-work factory worker, to act as her cultural translator. Together they form an unlikely friendship and begin building a rickety bridge across the cultural divide.
