‘Burning Love’ Duo Announces Multiplatform Fox Slate Including ‘Filthy Sexy Teen$’

The first slate of projects to be produced under Fox’s multiplatform deal with “Burning Love” team Keith Quinn and Jonathan Stern’s Abominable Pictures includes at least one very search engine-friendly title: “Filthy Sexy Teen$,” which received an eight-episode order and will have its global premiere on YouTube multichannel network Fullscreen in North America.

The half-hour comedy centers on two wealthy teen siblings who return home after being thought lost at sea and attempt to reclimb the high school social ladder. It is created by Curtis Gwinn (“NTSF:SD:SUV::,” “The Walking Dead”), Paul Scheer (“Fresh Off the Boat,” “The League”) and Stern.

“We are pleased to announce this first slate of projects, which are a direct result of the unique creative freedom and flexibility of this venture,” said Quinn and Stern. “The talented creators we are working with see the benefit in being able to shoot something right away without a long development process. A finished piece often represents a show better than a pitch or a script can.”

The full slate is listed below, although Fox notes that an additional wave of production is scheduled for the coming months.

“Filthy Sexy Teen$”
Two wealthy teen siblings, thought to be lost at sea, return home and attempt to re-climb the high school social ladder in this half-hour comedy. Created by Gwinn (“NTSF:SD:SUV::,” “The Walking Dead”), Scheer (“Fresh Off The Boat,” “The League”) and Stern (“Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,” “Childrens Hospital,” “Burning Love”). Quinn (“Burning Love,” “Jackass 3.5,” “LXD”) and Stern serve as executive producers with Gwinn and Scheer.

“Drive Share”
With an all-star comedic cast that includes Rob Huebel (“Despicable Me,” “AXE COP”) and Scheer, “Drive Share” follows a group of drivers as they shuttle strangers, and their problems, around town. Created by Huebel and Scheer. Stern, Quinn, Huebel and Scheer are executive producers.

“Criminal Records”
One record label has taken it upon itself to fix the music industry: Criminal Records. It’s run by Jace (Brooks Gray, “The Amazing Gayl Pile,” “Cock’d Gunns”) and Lyle (Morgan Waters, “The Amazing Gayl Pile,” “Cock’d Gunns”), two out-of-touch music execs who see themselves as the saviors of rock ’n’ roll. Created by Gray and Waters and exec produced along with Quinn, Stern, Scheer and Becca Kinskey (“Childrens Hospital,” “Adult Swim Late Night Infomercials”).

“Grand Marquee”
Jerry Minor (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” “Black-ish”) depicts an old-school rapper struggling both to regain relevancy in the hip-hop world and to maintain a relationship with his son – as told through the lens of a Danish news program. Created by Jerry Minor and John Matta (“The Martin Short Show,” “Steve Harvey’s Big Time Challenge”) who will exec produce, along with Quinn, Stern and Scheer.
