While Lee Daniels’ new musical drama pilot is expected to shoot earlier than previously announced -december instead of march- FOX keeps on ordering new projects, this time a traditional family comedy but with a twist!
The pilot called Bad Family, described by the network as Borat or Grandpa meets Married With Children, is a partially scripted television show that includes real unsuspecting people of the real world to help the narrative. To be clear, they’re adding a hidden camera element to the comedy that becomes part of the story. The concept and script have been imagined by Dave Jeser and Matt Silverstein, who worked on animated comedies Axe Cop and Golan the Insatiable, but also for 30 Rock and 3rd rock from the sun back in the days. They have another put pilot commitment for comedy Straight Outta Calabas. Bad Family is on the fast track: the pilot stats shooting this month. David Garfinkle, Jeff Gaspin and Jay Renfroe are producing, for 20th Century FOX Television and Renegade 83 Entertainment.
