Jerrod Carmichael to Produce Comedy Put Pilot at Fox Based on Life of Nate Bargatze (EXCLUSIVE)

Jerrod Carmichael is attached to write and executive produce a series in development at Fox based on the life of comedian Nate Bargatze, Variety has learned exclusively.

The currently untitled multi-camera series, which has received a put pilot order at the network, deals with Bargatze’s struggle moving back home to Tennessee and being caught between his wife and opinionated parents.

Bargatze will also serve as a writer and executive producer alongside Carmichael. Dan Shaki and Ari Katcher will serve as writers and co-executive producers, with Alex Murray and Tim Sarkes also executive producing. 20th Century Fox Television will produce in association with Brillstein Entertainment Partners. Katcher previously collaborated with Carmichael as co-creators of the critically-acclaimed NBC multi-cam comedy “The Carmichael Show.”

Bargatze is a stand up comedian known for multiple appearances on shows like “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Conan,” and “@midnight.” He released his first one-hour special “Nate Bargatze: Full Time Magic” in 2015 and appeared on “Comedy Central Presents” in 2011.

The put pilot order for this project is Carmichael’s second under his recently-signed overall deal with 20th TV. Earlier on Wednesday, Fox announced they had given another such order to a multi-cam series based around a fictionalized version of his former “Carmichael Show” co-star Lil Rel Howery. Carmichael will executive produce that project, with Howery and fellow “Carmichael Show” alums Josh Rabinowitz and Kevin Barnett serving as writers and executive producers. 20th TV previously produced “The Carmichael Show,” which ended its run on NBC earlier this year after three seasons.

Bargatze is repped by APA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners, and Ginsburg Daniels. Shaki is repped by APA and Ginsburg Daniels. Carmichael is repped by UTA and APA for touring. Katcher is repped by UTA.
