The America’s Got Talent judge and Juno writer are teaming up for a new synchronized-swimming comedy pilot at Fox, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Cowell will be an executive producer, and Cody is writing the pilot along with Glee co-creator Ian Brennan.

Never mind Ed Balls in full knights of the round table mode, I am still recovering from the sight of Anton doing funky James Brown moves in a gold medallion and Simon Cowell chest wig.

I was straight on to Google to check for previous dance experience. I can’t find any evidence, apart from a stint on Comic Relief in 2013 (which doesn »
