We have a hilarious pilot for you this month!! This one is called Fun For The Whole Family written by John Quaintance (Hot Pursuit, Will & Grace). It’s the first pilot John ever sold actually! Fun For The Whole Family centers around Max, an estranged son who returns to work alongside his brother and sister at his father’s Michigan Avenue toy company, he discovers it’s hard to run a functional business with a very dysfunctional family. It was set up at Fox and at one point Adam Scott was attached to play the lead role of Max! We had a great cast for this one including Andrew Leeds (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist) as Max, Charley Koontz (Community) as Donny, Isabella Gomez (One Day At A Time) as Claire, Bruce Greenwood (I, Robot) as Harvey, Emily Chang (The Bold Type) as Micky, Mike Cabellon (Mr. Mayor) as Josh, Sandeep Parikh (The Legend of Neil) as Connie, and Andrew Reich with stage directions.
Tune in next week for our interview with John. Thanks for supporting our show! Enjoy!
