McClammy on road to 'Nowhere' as Fox pilot's helmer

Empty

Wayne McClammy, director of viral hits "I'm F**king Matt Damon" and "I'm F**king Ben Affleck," has been tapped to direct Fox's hot single-camera comedy pilot "Boldly Going Nowhere."

The high-concept comedy is about what happens day to day on an intergalactic spaceship helmed by a rogue captain. It's from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" masterminds Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton; their RCG; 20th TV; and 3 Arts.

McClammy has no network experience, having only directed a couple of episodes of Comedy Central's "The Sarah Silverman Program" and segments for ABC's "The Jimmy Kimmel Show." And that's exactly what the "Sunny" trio — themselves outsiders to the system — was looking for.

"He might not have a ton of experience, but he had a creative and specific vision for the look, the feel and the tone of the show and how he wants to shoot it," McElhenney said.
