Trilling tapped to make ‘Porn’

Prod'n for telepic begins in mid-May

HOLLYWOOD — Comedy Central has tapped Lawrence Trilling (“Scrubs,” HBO’s “Dinner and Driving”) to direct and write a new draft of “Porn N’ Chicken,” the cable net’s first original TV movie.

In addition, the project, originally slated for a September debut, is now expected to premiere in the fourth quarter. Production will begin in mid-May.

“Porn N’ Chicken” is based on the true story of Yale’s Porn N’ Chicken Club, an underground group that gathers weekly to eat fried chicken and watch pornography. Film will be produced by Comedy Central Films and Tribeca Prods.

Trilling is repped by CAA and attorney Karl Austen.

A.D. Miles wrote the screenplay, which focuses on the controversy surrounding the making of “The StaXXX,” a porn film shot by the club.
