ABC Pilot News 2 Comedies


ABC are looking to add to the comedy offering with two new pilot greenlit.


Start Up, based on the podcast of the same name, would see Zach Braff set to star, executive produce and direct the pilot. The single-camera comedy follows Alex Schuman (Braff), an inquisitive journalist, husband and father, who dives headfirst into the brave new world of entrepreneurship when he quits his stable job and starts his own business.

An untitled single-camera comedy with Daveed Diggs (Hamilton) set to executive produce follows an outspoken, idealistic rapper runs for office as a publicity stunt and actually gets elected, then surprising everyone, including himself, when he has a natural knack for the job and slowly transforms City Hall.
