Joe Otterson, reporting for Variety:
Apple has given a straight-to-series order to a half-hour scripted
comedy from Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, Variety has learned.
The series is set in a video game development studio, with
McElhenney also attached to star in addition to writing and
executive producing alongside Day. The series marks the duo’s
first collaboration as writers since “It’s Always Sunny in
Philadelphia.” McElhenney co-created “It’s Always Sunny” with
both he and Day starring and serving as executive producers on
It’s Always Sunny is one of my favorite shows. What I find particularly interesting about this deal is that if this new show is anything like It’s Always Sunny, Apple is not shying away from R-rated original content.
