Comedy Central clears Lee pilot for takeoff
EmptyComedy Central is moving forward with its untitled Bobby Lee project, giving it a pilot order.
Troy Miller ("Flight of the Conchords") has come aboard to direct and produce through his Dakota Pictures.
The half-hour narrative comedy, announced in March as part of the network's development slate, focuses on "MadTV" veteran Lee's point of view on living in a multicultural world. In the pilot, he attempts to bridge the racial divide between blacks and Koreans.
CAA-repped Lee wrote the pilot with Michael Hitchcock & Dick Blasucci ("MadTV"). All three executive produce.
Miller is repped by Endeavor; Hitchcock by Gersh and Rain Management. (partialdiff)
