Fox has put in development two comedies from writing duos, one from Andy Mogel & Jarrad Paul, and one from Kevin Biggins & Travis Bowe. Both are produced by Chernin Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV, with Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope executive producing. Mogel and Paul’s untitled comedy, which the two are writing/exec producing, centers on an over-confident optimist who, after being rejected by the girl of his dreams, buys her struggling company in an absurd attempt to get close to her. The UTA-repped duo is currently writing Devils Night for Sony with Gary Sanchez set to produce and Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly attached to star. They created Fox’s Allen Gregory and wrote the feature Yes Man.
Biggins and Bowe’s School Of Fish is a multi-cam that explores the life and times of crazy fishmongers who are the rock stars of the Pike Place Market in Seattle. According to the duo, “the idea originated from Travis’ upbringing in the Pacific Northwest and blue-collar jobs we have had in the past. Also, Kevin enjoys fish and both of our wives enjoy farmers markets.” Biggins and Bowe, repped by The Rothman Brecher Agency and Mosaic, are producers on Family Guy.
