TBS Greenlights New Pilot from Matt Fogel ('07)

October 29, 2015

A new untitled pilot by Matt Fogel (’07) and his longtime friend Todd Strauss-Schulson has just received a greenlight from TBS. The pilot, which stars Adam Shapiro and Jack Carpenter as two overly-sensitive men looking for connection in Los Angeles, was written by Fogel and Strauss-Schulson, and draws from their real life experiences as emotional men in the powerful and assertive world of Hollywood.

As a network, TBS has undergone a rebranding. Fogel’s pilot is one of a handful of shows being picked up by the network, which, according to Deadline, is now seeking more “bold, socially driven” content. Fogel, Strauss-Schulson and Ken Franchi will executive produce, along with Ben Stiller’s company Red Hour under a first-look deal with Legendary TV.
