Many web series claim to offer awkward moments from the lives of their protagonists. This week's featured indie series takes that formula one step further: The protagonist is himself a walking, talking awkward moment. Actor Darrell Lake is the creator and star of The Incredible Life of Darrell, which delivers the funny through its deadpan lead.

ABC Family has ordered workplace comedy “Kevin From Work” to series, set to premiere this summer. The pickup is a step in the cabler’s expansion into more original scripted comedy.

“Single camera represents the evolution of our comedy brand,“ Karey Burke, exec VP of programming and development at ABC Family, commented Tuesday. “‘Kevin From Work’ is an endearingly awkward love story — this time from the guy’s point of view.”

The half-hour laffer comes from Barbie Adler (“How I Met Your Mother”), who penned the pilot and will serve as writer on the series. »
