Rust Belt News - Comedy Ordered To Pilot At CBS


The network has ordered a pilot for Rust Belt News, a single-camera comedy from The Simpsons writer and The Mindy Project exec producer Matt Warburton.

The project is set in a small Ohio town where the local newspaper goes out of business, leaving the ambitious, angsty reporters of the high school newspaper as the only people left to report on scandals, dig up corruption, and generally polish the rust off this rust-belt community.

Warburton, who also worked with Mindy Kaling on a number of series including Never Have I Ever and The Sex Lives of College Girls, will write and exec produce. Alloy Entertainment’s Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo will also exec produce the comedy, which comes from Warner Bros Television.
