The network on Monday greenlighted the single-camera project about a quartet of male friends. It is produced by Regency TV.
"It's about male friendship and how it endures and survives through change," Loeb said.
Loeb penned the script on spec while working with Phillips on Men, a comedy feature in the works at Warner Bros. that Loeb penned and Phillips is on board to direct. The movie centers on a man and his wife's lover who become roommates.
"Todd and I loved exploring the idea of male friendship," Loeb said. He showed the Change script to Phillips, who responded to it and made a few suggestions that Loeb incorporated.
Change was taken to the networks 10 days ago and landed bids from ABC, NBC and Fox. It went to ABC after Loeb and Phillips met with all three nets.
Change, which is eyed to shoot in December, is being exec produced by Loeb and Steven Pearl through their production company Scarlet Fire and by Phillips through his Green Hat Films.
