Fox Redeveloping Family Comedy From ‘Big Bang Theory’ Actors, Peter Tolan

Fox is redeveloping a multi-camera comedy series from John Ross Bowie and Kevin Sussman with Peter Tolan now joining as a writer and executive producer, Variety has learned.

Titled “The Ever After Part,” the series will follow a couple who, faced with the difficulties of raising their daughter in a hip, on the rise neighborhood, must swallow their pride and move in with the husband’s flamboyant mother and her manservant.

In addition to Tolan, Bowie, and Sussman, Peter Principato and Joel Zadak of Principato Young Entertainment will also serve as executive producers. Jill McGrath will serve as producer. Sony Pictures Television Studios will produce in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Tolan’s The Cloudland Company is currently set up under an overall deal at Sony.

Both Bowie and Sussman have made multiple appearances on CBS’ “Big Bang Theory.” Bowie plays Barry Kripke while Sussman plays Stuart Bloom. Bowie also appears on ABC’s “Speechless” and his past credits include “Veep,” “Fresh Off the Boat,” and “Episodes.” For Sussman, his other credits include “Weeds,” “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,” “Ugly Betty,” and “E.R.”

The pair originally sold the pitch for the project for the 2012-2013 season.

For Tolan, this marks his second broadcast development project this season. Previously, he and Norman Lear secured a pilot production commitment for Lear’s passion project “Guess Who Died.”  Based on Lear’s personal experience of working well into his 90’s, the series is described as a humorous and inspiring look at the shared joys and challenges people experience at any stage of life.

Sussman is repped by APA. Bowie is repped by Pakula King and Principato Young. Tolan is repped by CAA and attorney Ira Schreck.
