Jesus H. Christ, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and the Rock could team up and have the unstoppable power to produce every single piece of future entertainment.
Rogen and production partner Evan Goldberg’s Point Grey Pictures has announced the acquisition of two single-camera comedies by Fox and ABC. Produced by Brad Copeland (and executive produced by Rogen and Goldberg), the ABC series follows a young couple struggling with married life and the fact that one of them is a member of the illuminati. Meanwhile, the Fox project, from Mike Rosolio (and once again executive produced by Rogen and Goldberg), follows “an ambitious MIT graduate who gets a job working for a Steve Jobs-esque tech genius, only to learn he’s also a vigilante superhero by night, forcing her to become the unwitting Alfred to his Batman.” There’s something almost weirdly refreshing about there actually being a non-comics superhero show on network TV again in this golden age of superhero TV, isn’t there?
The two projects join a litany of other genre-themed shows Rogen and Goldberg are currently lending their names to, including:
- A comedy about Ray Kurzweil’s Singularity theory for FX
- Hulu’s Future Man, a Last Starfighter-esque scifi show starring Josh Hutchinson
- A time-travelling Where’s Waldo movie???
- And of course, Preacher, due for a second season on AMC
And presumably another five million things, too. How do they find the time?
