'American Dad' vet McKenna wrote pilot
Matt McKenna (“American Dad”) has written the pilot, which FX Prods. will produce. Rogen and Goldberg are exec producing through Point Grey Pictures, along with McKenna, illustrator-writer Graham Roumieu, Jimmy Miller and Sam Hansen of Mosaic and “Archer” exec producers Adam Reed and Matt Thompson of Floyd County Prods.
Roumieu provided the source material in his faux comic Bigfoot graphic novel autobiographies “In Me Own Words,” “Me Write Book” and “I Not Dead.” The program features Bigfoot as a modern-day Everyman who struggles with life’s philosophical quandaries as well as his own animalistic tendencies.
With FXX set to launch in September, the company has been ramping up its comedy development. “Bigfoot” is one of seven comedy pilots that FX Networks has in production.
