St. Germain will pen the script and star in the untitled comedy as Dustin, a guy who is a complete emotional wreck after he gets dumped, so he decides to move back in with his ex and her current boyfriend to figure out what went wrong and learn how to stop being a man baby when it comes to love.

The comedian -- who has had his own Comedy Central special and has appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Best Week Ever and WTF With Marc Maron -- will executive produce alongside Johnson and Winkler via the duo's 20th Century Fox Television-based production company, The Walcott Co. Mary Lee will oversee for Walcott.

St. Germain, whose first upcoming album Bad at the Good Times will debut soon, is repped by UTA and Olivia Wingate Artists. He next appears in the animated web series In Security, which airs on Comedy Central Studios. His weekly podcast with Sean Donnelly -- My Dumb Friends -- will also be broadcast on Comedy Central Radio on SiriusXM.

For Johnson and Winkler, the untitled St. Germain comedy marks their newly launched banner's second sale this development season. The duo also has a Matt Spicer dysfunctional family comedy set up at Fox. Winkler is at CAA and Management 360; Johnson is repped by UTA and 3 Arts.
