Keaton has inked a deal in which the pay cabler and Keaton’s Blue Relief Prods. will develop two half-hour comedies, one of which Keaton will star in and exec produce. No writers are attached to either project.

Keaton’s longtime producing partner Bill Robinson will exec produce whichever series goes forward. Pair most recently exec produced Gus Van Sant’s “Elephant.”
