Apple green lights new comedy from Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-stars Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day got some great news as Apple gave their newest half-hour scripted comedy the straight-to-series order, according to Deadline.
The untitled comedy, written by the duo, is described by the trade as a “cutting-edge comedy that is set in a video game development studio and will explore the intricacies of the human condition through hilarious and innovative ways.”
McElhenney and Day will also serve as executive producers on the series under their RCG banner with 3Arts’ Michael Rotenberg and Nicholas Frenkel and Gérard Guillemot, Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik for Ubisoft.
Day was last seen in the action thriller Hotel Artemis, directed by Drew Pearce and staring Jodie Foster (Silence of the Lambs), Sterling K. Brown (This is Us), Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond) and Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom). He also starred in the action sequel Pacific Rim: Uprising alongside John Boyega (Star Wars: The Last Jedi)
McElhenney was gearing up to direct the Minecraft movie for Warner Bros. before backing out. He is currently working on an off-cycle untitled comedy pilot for Fox with producer Rob Rosell.
Both Day and McElhenney will return to the small screen for the 13th season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia this September.
