Twentieth Century Fox TV and Geoff Stults have inked a talent holding deal that includes development of a multicam comedy.
Laffer will star Stults and be developed by the thesp and his writing and producing partner Dave Whatley. Aaron Kaplan will also produce the comedy, which will be shopped around later this month.
Stults will appear in a recurring role on Fox’s “Ben and Kate” and previously starred in 20th Century TV drama “The Finder,” though Fox pulled the plug on the skein in May.
Sharon Klein, exec veep of casting and talent at 20th Century TV, said Stults’ work on “The Finder” proved the actor “can anchor a show with his dry wit.”
Stults is repped by UTA and Ashley Franklin at Thruline Entertainment.
