ABC has ordered pilots for two new comedy TV series: Chunk & Bean, from writers Ed Herro and Brian Donovan, who will EP with Dave Heminsgson. Donovan hails from cancelled sitcom, The Neighbors, while Hemingson is from the cancelled Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 TV show.
Square Roots was created by Vijal Patel, who will write and executive produce. You may recognize Patel as a writer and co-executive producer from the credits of ABC’s Black-ish sitcom.
Here’s how TVInsider describes the two newly ordered comedy pilots:
[Chunk & Bean] centers ‘on the unlikely friendship of two misfits, Chunk and Bean, who benefit from having two very different sets of parents living next door to each other’.
Square Roots… was first developed at ABC for the 2013-2014 season….
The show follows a man ‘from a family of logic-driven engineers who is determined to use his ‘gift’ to help the people he loves with their everyday issues…whether they like it or not’.
