Rough House signs deal with Fox TV

Pod pact aims to yield broadcast series

Rough House Pictures is looking to break into broadcast television, signing a development deal with 20th Century Fox Television.

The one-year pod deal is aimed at yielding series from the Mandate Pictures-backed outfit behind theatrical “Pineapple Express” and HBO’s “Eastbound and Down.” Principals are Matt Reilly, David Gordon Green, Jody Hill and Danny McBride.

20th TV co-chairman Gary Newman acknowledged that while Rough House is best known for comedic stylings quirkier or racier than what you typically see on broadcast TV, that’s exactly their appeal.

“I think you’ve got broadcast networks who know they have to continually push boundaries if they want to be relevant and competitive,” said Newman. “I know these guys will find a way to work within broadcast standards.”

No specific projects have been teed up yet, but the deal could yield animated series as well as scripted comedies. 20th TV produces several animated series for Fox, including “Family Guy” and “The Simpsons.”

Green is directing the forthcoming Jonah Hill comedy “The Sitter” for 20th Century Fox Studios. McBride, Hill and Reilly are currently in production on the third season of “Eastbound.”
