Joe and Anthony Russo are riding high this week after the release of Captain America: Civil War, but the pair has something else to be happy about. Deadline reported that Showtime is developing a new comedy from the brothers. The Russo brothers will executive produce the currently untitled comedy with Moshe Kasher and Zach Cregger.
Deadline revealed the following about the plot of the series:
“The project focuses on a larcenous family of pot dealers whose world is turned upside down when their illegal enterprise suddenly becomes legal in their home state. As the family struggles to adapt to the strange new world of legitimate business, they are forced to depend upon the business acumen of their son, whose straight and narrow leanings have always made him a “black sheep” in this clan of reprobates.”
