Adam Pally in Making History

Adam Pally to Star in Fox's Time-Travel Comedy Pilot Making History

Adam Pally is graduating from funny sidekick to full-fledged leading man.

The Happy Endings and Mindy Project scene-stealer is set to star in Fox’s time travel comedy pilot Making History, TVLine has learned.

Exec produced by Last Man on Earth EPs Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the potential series centers on three friends who find a way to travel through time in search of truth, justice, and riches, which complicates their lives in 2016. They visit some of the greatest moments of the past as they try to resolve their personal problems, while history and pop culture comically collide.

Pally will play the role of Dan, a nerdy computer science professor at a small college who is credited with inventing time travel. He methodically uses stolen music, movie lines, and popular culture to great acclaim in the past, where people find him interesting, dashing and gallant. We see two Dans — the “nerd rage” guy having a hard time in the present, and the cooler more carefree guy in the past.

The Grinder‘s Julius “Goldy” Sharpe penned the pilot script and will serve as an exec producer alongside Lord and Miller.

    Sounds really funny. I love him. Hope it works out.

  2. His character sounds a bit like Nick Webber in Hot Tub Time Machine.

  3. Julie says:

    The same character was played by Jack Black in Gulliver’s Travels…

    Happy Adam got a leading role in a new show. He’s so funny.

  5. Bryce says:

    Adam Pally: the leading man nobody needs, or wants

  6. J. Stidham says:

    I would never watch a show with him in. Anybody that wants to go back in time and kill the current president is not my idea of an actor.
