Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are developing a comedy series, titled ‘UNprofessionals’, for CBS. The series will revolve around a group of the least important people, who happen to be working in one of the most important places in the world, that is, the United Nations.
Andy Schwartz, who is known for his work on ‘Scrubs’ and Disney XD’s ‘Mighty Med’, is writing the script along with comedians Randy and Jason Sklar, known for shows like ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm‘, ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ and ‘Children’s Hospital’. They are also executive producing along with Point Grey Picture’s Rogen, Goldberg, Alex McAtee, and James Weaver. Jay Chandrasekhar, who is known for his work on ‘Arrested Development‘ and ‘New Girl‘, is set to direct as well as executive produce. Lionsgate has a multi-platform deal with Point Grey, and is, therefore, also producing the series.
Apart from ‘UNprofessionals’, CBS has a solid development slate, which includes the likes of ‘Pretty’, a comedy that comes from Santina Muha Lindsey Kraft. It is being executive produced by Kaley Cuoco, best known for playing Penny on ‘Big Bang Theory‘. There is also an untitled comedy in the works from Corinne Kingsbury, the creator of ‘In the Dark’ and ‘Fam’. Apart from that, a drama titled ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’, based on Michael Connelly’s books is in the works. It comes from David E. Kelley, the ‘Big Little Lies‘ showrunner.
As for Seth Rogen, he was recently seen in ‘The Boys‘, which he also produced. His upcoming projects include ‘Zeroville’, which is about a young actor showing up during a transitional time in Hollywood and ‘An American Pickle’, which tells the story of an immigrant worker who is preserved for a 100 years at a pickle factory to wake up in modern-day Brooklyn. Other projects include ‘Invincible’ and ‘King of the Jungle’.
