Onboard to direct “The Station” is helmer David Wain (“Role Models”).

Stiller (through his Red Hour Films), Jeremy Kramer and Stuart Cornfeld are the exec producers on “The Station,” which comes from scribe Kevin Napier. Twentieth Century Fox TV is the studio.

Goodman’s recent TV credits include “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” “Center of the Universe,” “The West Wing” and “Normal, Ohio.” He also provided his voice for “Father of the Pride.”
