Brains at HBO on 'Intelligence'


HBO is developing "Intelligence," a comedy series project starring Bradley Cooper and Patton Oswalt.

The project, created by Michael Patrick Jann, is a workplace comedy about an elite counterintelligence unit hidden undercover as disgruntled civil servants.

Jann, who recently helmed an episode of HBO's offbeat comedy series "Flight of the Conchords," will write "Intelligence" and is on board to direct. He will executive produce alongside Cooper and Oswalt.

Cooper is filming "He's Just Not That Into You" and "All About Steve" and next appears in "The Midnight Meat Train." His credits include "Failure to Launch," "The Wedding Crashers" and ABC's "Alias."

Jan also has directed episodes of Comedy Central's "Reno 911!"

Cooper, Oswalt and Jann are repped by CAA. Cooper is managed by Thruline. Oswalt is managed by Generate. Jann is also repped by attorney Gretchen Rush.
