“The Neighbors” and “Galavant” creator will serve as writer and exec producer on the project, which landed at the network after a very competitive bidding war.
John Requa and Glenn Ficarra will direct the pilot, while also serving as exec producers with Fogelman, Jess Rosenthal and Charlie Gogolak. The untitled series hails from 20th Century Fox.
The pilot marks a reunion for Fogelman, Requa and Ficarra, who all worked on the 2011 Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling rom-com “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” Fogelman wrote the screenplay, while Requa and Ficarra co-directed the film. The directing duo also directed and penned Will Smith’s latest film, “Focus,” which Gogolak also exec produced.
Fogelman’s other credits include the wildly successful animated movies “Cars” and “Tangled,” for which he wrote the screenplay.
The NBC pilot is slated to shoot before the end of this year.
Fogelman is repped by WME, Management 360 and Hansen Jacobsen. Requa & Ficarra are repped by CAA and attorney Jeff Frankel at McKuin Frankel Whitehead.
