JB Smoove Teams With Fox On New Comedy Series
JB Smoove is set to star in a new comedy project in development at Fox.
“He’s trying to get his life back, and has noble aims, but has a talent for consistently tripping himself up. There’s shades of ‘Roseanne’ in its blue collar subject matter. It felt like a good comedy vehicle for JB and an idea suited for our moment.”
“I thought it would be fun to develop something for him as the star. Consistently people who told me how funny ‘Date Night’ was would specifically cite the car chase sequence (featuring Smoove).”
