Ex-Office EP Developing 2 New Sitcoms For NBC

Former Office producer/director Ken Kwapis has sold two family-themed half-hour comedy projects to NBC, TVLine has confirmed.

The first, tentatively titled Fred and Marilyn, is inspired by the real-life relationship between writer Scott Prendergast (Kabluey) and his formidable mother.

The second is based on the best-selling Joey Pigza book series by Jack Gantos and is being billed as a high-definition family comedy. Claudia Silver (Jungle Junction) will pen the script.

Kwapis and Alexandra Beattie will shepherd the projects — both of which are only in the pilot script stage — through their In Cahoots production company.

    Joey Pigza were cute books. Don’t really see it as a tv show though.
