Hulu Developing Animated Comedy from Adam Pally Based on @LosFelizDaycare Twitter Feed (Exclusive)
Hulu is getting into business with Adam Pally.
The streaming service is developing an animated comedy with the former Happy Endings star based on the popular @LosFelizDaycare Twitter feed managed by Jason Shapiro. The project hails from Pally’s production company Clone Wolf and 3 Arts Entertainment.
Shapiro will write the script with American Dad! co-executive producer Erik Richter, who will serve as the showrunner and an executive producer alongside Pally, Greg Walter and Josh Lieberman. Clone Wolf's Ben Stricof will produce.
Created in 2013, the parody twitter account pokes fun at modern-day progressive parenting. The feed — which describes a fake daycare that has coconut water on tap, mandatory meditation times and a strict no-tree-nut policy — has amassed more than 88,000 followers over the course of four years.
Pally has a relationship with the streamer from his time as a series regular on The Mindy Project, which moved to Hulu after three seasons on Fox. He also recently starred in Fox's since-canceled comedy Making History, and is a producer on Comedy Central's The President’s Show, which the network just picked up for more episodes.
Should Hulu order the show to series, it would join a growing slate of originals at the streamer that includes The Handmaid's Tale, National Treasure, Casual, The Path, Difficult People, Shut Eye and Chance — along with other originals that have yet to premiere such as Marvel drama Runaways, J.J. Abrams' anthology Castle Rock, 9/11 limited series The Looming Tower, Seth Rogen's Future Man and Beau Willimon's The First.
Pally and Richter are repped by UTA and 3 Arts. Shapiro is repped by CAA and Rise Management.
