NBC Developing Pub Quiz Comedy From Chris Moynihan
NBC is jumping on the pub quiz bandwagon.
The network has handed out a script commitment to an untitled comedy from Chris Moynihan set against a weekly pub quiz, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
American Dreams alum Jonathan Prince is on board to executive produce the multicamera comedy about a group of millennials who team up once a week to compete in their local pub quiz. Moynihan (Veep, Man Up) will pen the script and executive produce the Universal Television comedy.
The sale comes as pub quiz nights are popping up at bars across the country where groups from two and up compete to answer pop culture, history, political, sports and more questions for prizes.
This marks Moynihan's second sale this development season. He's also attached to pen the script for an untitled live comedy for NBC with Sean Hayes' Hazy Mills banner and Universal Television.
Moynihan is repped by Rothman Brecher, Thruline and Felker Toczek; Prince (The Cleaner, Cane) is with Rothman Brecher and Jackoway Tyerman.
