TBS pledges 'Frat House' in late-night
EmptyTBS is rushing the "Frat House."
The cable network has ordered a presentation for a tentatively titled half-hour late-night project from Bunim-Murray that is in the vein of the 2003 Will Ferrell comedy "Old School."
The project follows three comedian-hosts — Bret Ernst (Showtime's "Weeds"), Theo Von (ABC Family's "America's Prom Queen") and Bert Kreischer (Comedy Central's "Reality Bites Back") — as they lead a band of guys, each at a crossroads, who long for the simpler, raucous days of life in a frat house.
The news comes on the heels of TBS' ordering a pilot for another late-night project, "The TBS Comedy Roadshow," a contemporary take on vaudeville hosted by Harland Williams.
Bunin-Murray's credits include MTV's "The Real World" and E!'s "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." (partialdiff)
