ABC Developing Small Town Serial Killer Comedy With Jack Black Producing

ABC is developing a single camera comedy series about a serial killer with Jack Black attached as an executive producer, Variety has learned.

Titled “Boring, OR,” the series is described an ensemble comedy about a small town with a serial killer on the loose. It follows Jonna, a police officer, who is determined to stop the killings while the rest of the townspeople remain dead set on not letting it affect their day-to-day lives.

Stephen Soroka will write and serve as supervising producer on the project. Black will executive produce under his Electric Dynamite banner, with Electric Dynamite’s head of development Spencer Berman will also executive produce. Eric Appel will also serve as an executive producer, with ABC Studios producing.

The project will mark the first television series produced at Electric Dynamite, though Black himself has served as a producer on numerous projects. Among his producing credits is the HBO series “The Brink,” “Ghost Ghirls,” and “Tenacious D: The Complete Master Works,” with Black also acting in all of them. He is also set to appear in the upcoming film “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” opposite Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan.

Black is repped by WME. Appel is repped by WME and Principato-Young Entertainment. Soroka is repped by Rothman Brecher Ehrich Livingston.
