'Bad Judge's' Tone Bell Sells Comedy to FX (Exclusive)
Since winning NBC's Stand Up for Diversity Program, comedian Tone Bell is making the most of his time in Hollywood.
The comedian and co-star on NBC's Bad Judge has just sold a comedy script to FX, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Created by Bell and comedian Mark Agee, the untitled comedy takes a page from the diverse college admissions brochures and follows four guys from vastly different backgrounds as they clumsily try to figure out how to get by — and get along.

Bell is repped by Innovative, Black Box and Robert Koch; Gatewood and Tanaka are with UTA, Management 360 and Bruce Gellman; Agee is with Black Box.
