Seth Rogen is getting into network comedy.
Along with his producing partner Evan Goldberg and scribe Dan Sterling, Rogen will serve as an exec producer on “Citizen Floyd,” a comedy that has landed a put pilot commitment at Fox, Variety has learned.
The half-hour, single camera laffer is described as a workplace comedy with political, action and suspense elements.
Rogen and Goldberg are producing by way of their Point Grey Pictures banner with 20th Century Fox where Sterling is under an overall deal.
The Fox project marks a reunion for the trio, as Sterling wrote the “The Interview,” in which Rogen starred alongside James Franco, plus directed and produced with Goldberg.
James Weaver of Point Grey will also serve as an EP on “Citizen Floyd.” Alex McAtee will be overseeing the project for Point Grey.
In the television landscape, Rogen and Goldberg are also behind AMC’s “Preacher,” which was recently ordered to series. The duo directed the pilot, which is an adaptation of the comics. On the film side, they also co-wrote and directed “Pineapple Express,” “This Is the End” and penned “Superbad” together. They also produced the Zac Efron flick “Neighbors” and are behind the upcoming sequel “Neighbors 2.”
Sterling took over showrunner duties for Will Forte on Fox’s “Last Man on Earth” for its current second season. He also recently sold a pilot to CBS along with Phil Lord and Chris Miller. His other TV credits include “The Office,” on which he was an exec producer, HBO’s “Girls” and Sarah Silverman’s Comedy Central show, on which he was the showrunner.
Rogen, Goldberg and Sterling are all repped by UTA. Rogen and Goldberg are also repped by attorney Fred Toczek, and Sterling by Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern, LLP.
