Comedy Central is smarter than we are. The cabler is developing a brothers comedy TV series with Zack Pearlman and Julian Sergi. And just look at them! Don’t you wish you’d thought of it, first? Pearlman played Andre on Mulaney, which was cancelled by FOX after one season. He voices the character Anou on Comedy Central’s animated TripTank TV show.
Sergi, who is in the War Dogs feature starring Jonah Hill and Miles Teller, has appeared on episodes of Grace and Frankie, as well as Key and Peele, which is ending next month. Per Deadline, Pearlman and Sergi are executive producing and starring in the unnamed project. They will co-write with Andrew Guest. Payman Benz has been tapped to direct and will executive produce with Principato-Young Entertainment.
Deadline says, “The show centers on brothers, George and Calvin, (Pearlman and Sergi) who, in rejecting their racist upbringing, flee the Midwest to South Central L.A. and attempt a new life with George’s African American girlfriend and her nerdy brother.”
