'American Dad' producer lands pitches at nets
“American Dad” producer Bob Kushell has sold two comedy pitches this development season — an animated laffer at Fox and a family sitcom at NBC.
At Fox, “Red Roofs” revolves around the quirky citizens of a suburban subdivision. And the untitled NBC multi-camera comedy centers on a blended family dealing with the death of the clan’s patriarch (who had been living a double life).
Kushell’s credits include serving as exec producer on “3rd Rock from the Sun,” “Grounded for Life,” “The Tracy Morgan Show” and “Jake in Progress.” His credits also include “Samantha Who,” “Malcolm in the Middle” and “The Simpsons.”
Kushell also hosted his own Internet talkshow, “Anytime with Bob Kushell,” for Sony and Crackle.
