Fox Orders Comedy Script Produced by Matt Damon, Ben Affleck

Fox has given a script order plus penalty for a comedy penned by”30 Rock” alum Colleen McGuinness.

McGuinness has partnered with Pearl Street’s Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Todd to exec produce the untitled single-cam comedy set around the life of a 25-year-old frozen yogurt shop employee whose life is going nowhere — until she discovers that she is telekinetic.

McGuinness previously worked as a writer and producer on “30 Rock,” and was a supervising producer on NBC’s “About A Boy.”

Pearl Street is currently producing a new run of filmmaking documentary series “Project Greenlight” for HBO and is in pre-production on the film adaptation of the Dennis Lehane novel “Live by Night.” The shingle is also developing the futuristic espionage thriller “Incorporated” with Syfy.

Affleck had been set to direct the pilot of Fox’s Boston crime drama “The Middle Man,” but the project was put on hold when he had to pull out of the project to film “Batman v. Superman.”
