Weird Like Us: Fox Commits to Comedy Pilot from Ed Helms

23 October 2015 9:37 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Biodiesel and beekeeping. Those are two things to look forward to in Weird Like Us, the comedy pilot Fox has just ordered.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the single-camera series revolves around a duo of "biodiesel-driving, backyard beekeeping, counterculture rebels who face a family crisis when their own children rebel — by going mainstream."

The comedy comes from The Colbert Show writer Max Werner and actor Ed Helms. Werner is set to write the pilot, with Helms serving as executive producer.

Wes Anderson’s whimsical script for “The Grand Budapest Hotel” took the Writers Guild of America award for original screenplay, while Graham Moore’s script for codebreaking thriller “The Imitation Game” won for adapted screenplay.

HBO’s “True Detective” and FX’s “Louie” each took a pair of TV trophies.

“I can think of no greater neighborhood to accept this award in,” Anderson added.
