Fox Buys JB Smoove Sitcom Pitch
Donít think Curb Your Enthusiasmís final season will be the last youíll see of J.B. Smoove. The former Saturday Night Live writer recently delivered a scene-stealing performance in Date Night and because of it, he may have ended up with his own sitcom. Never underestimate the power of the best stage name ever.
According to Deadline, the single camera comedy will be written by Smoove and Office veteran producer Aaron Shure and will follow a recently divorced man without the resources to move out. Heíll head to the basement to get his life together while he tries to reconnect with his family.
The untitled show is being produced by Shawn Levy who directed Smoove in Date Night. After receiving a barrage of compliments about the actorís hilarious cab driver, Levy decided to work together on a larger vehicle for J.B. Smoove, and thatís how we got here.
Hereís to hoping this makes its way past the pilot phase.
