Fox Buys Workplace Comedy 'Type-A' From Jason Winer
Fox is looking for a few Type A characters.
The network is teaming with prolific director/executive producer Jason Winer (Life in Pieces, Modern Family, New Girl) to develop a workplace comedy called Type-A.
Written by Lesley Wake Webster (Life in Pieces, American Dad, New Girl), the single-camera comedy has received a script plus penalty commitment from Fox. The potential series revolves around a group of people hand-picked to do a job most others couldn't handle. They are achievers and alphas but, most importantly ... assholes.
Winer will executive produce via his 20th Century Fox Television banner.
