IFC is developing a scripted comedy “Uncle Chubby’s” from Denis Leary’s Apostle banner.

“Uncle Chubby’s” follows the exploits of a group of friends in their late 20s as they play on an ice hockey team, determined to win the adult league title despite little experience playing the sport competitively.

Apostle’s Jim Serpico and Tom Sellitti wrote the script and will exec produce with Leary.

Apostle also produces “Maron” for IFC. The company is set to begin production on the second season of USA Network’s “Sirens” as well as the Leary starrer “Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll” for FX. Serpico and Sellitti are also writing “The Bakken,”  a one-hour drama pilot for Fox Television Studios.
