Titled Fish Out of Water, the project — which currently has a script commitment at the streaming platform — is described as a Larry Sanders-esque take on celebrity vanity projects, which will follow country music star Paisley’s struggle to “keep a simple little fishing show from turning into his own personal Fyre Festival.”
A.D. Miles (The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon) will write the script and exec-produce with Paisley. Will Arnett also will serve as an EP, as part of his overall deal with Sony Pictures Television.
Though Paisley has previously guest-starred on shows such as Two and a Half Men, According to Jim and Nashville, Fish Out of Water would mark his first series-regular TV gig, should the project go forward at Amazon.
