Prod'n outfit to develop five sitcom projects

Nash Entertainment, whose reality specials “Breaking the Magician’s Code” and “When Good Pets Go Bad” have scored solid ratings for Fox, said Wednesday it plans to branch out and develop five sitcoms with DreamWorks and Regent Television.

According to producer Bruce Nash, the company is developing several sitcoms, including:

  • An untitled project with former NBC exec Warren Littlefield.

  • “It’s a Dog’s Life,” with Regency TV for Fox Broadcasting, written by “South Park” scribe Andrew Borakove.

    Show with DreamWorks include:

  • “Dates From Hell,” for Fox, written by Sandra Tsing Loh.

  • “Ghost Town,” for CBS, set in a modern-day ghost town.

  • “The Ludermans,” based on the Duracell battery ads featuring a plastic robot family. Steve Johnson, who created the family for the commercials, is developing the show.

Nash recently inked a deal with NBC to produce 13 one-hour episodes of a reality special called “World’s Scariest Videos” to air on the network beginning in March.
