The half hour sitcom has already earned a big put pilot commitment from the network and 20th Century Fox TV. Fox also has a TV show remake of Tom Hanks' 1988 comedy Big in development, as the studio was behind both films. Bachelor Party is being produced by the Small Dog Picture Co., run by feature film director Jason Winer, and Walcott Co., run by director Max Winkler and New Girl star Jake Johnson.
The Bachelor Party anthology series was co-created by New Girl writer-producers J.J. Philbin and Josh Malmuth, and will examine the sanctity of marriage through the lens of three couples: One about to get married, one divorced, and a third just starting to fall in love. They will experience their relationships day by day as they continue to grow and change. »
I'm probably too close to Real Genius to make an objective call as to whether it's a great movie or not, but damn do I love it. I often used to consider Val Kilmer's carefree but brilliant Chris Knight my spirit animal until I realized I was neither brilliant or carefree. Martha Coolidge's 1985 comedy also gave us the great characters of Lazlo (played by Jon Gries), Jordan (Michelle Meyrink) and even Mitch Taylor (Gabriel Jarret) not to mention two all-timer douchebag villains in William Atherton's Jerry Hathaway and Robert Prescott's Kent. I'm itching to watch that movie even as I type this. Will Adam Sandler's Happy Madison, Sony TV, 3 Arts and NBC be able to recapture that excitement? Hard to tell so far, but they're going to have to try because they're making Real Genius as a half-hour comedy. Hit the jump for more on the Real Genius TV Show. »
