Craig Doyle sets two TV projects
Lining up comedy for Fox and sibling series to CBSCraig Doyle is getting fraternal.
The film and television scribe has sold two sibling-themed television projects, including one that is being developed by 20th Century Fox TV and the studio-based Chernin Entertainment.
The 20th TV/Chernin project, set up at Fox, is a comedy about an adult man who's made a mess of his life but must come to the aid of his Type A sister after she suffers a tragedy.
Doyle also has sold the multicamera sibling comedy "Three Sisters" to CBS. Produced by CBS Television Studios and Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg's Katalyst Films, it focuses on three very different men who marry three sisters who are extremely close.
Doyle, repped by CAA and Madhouse Entertainment, did work on "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past" at New Line and "Closed for the Holidays" at Paramount.
He also has sold a number of scripts that went to pilot, including "The Guys" at ABC and "Weekends" at NBC. Doyle, who also counts "The Andy Dick Show" among his credits, recently sold a script to TV Land titled "The Do-Over."
Chernin's company has been ramping up its film and television efforts, recently signing up the TV script "Sequestered," a multicamera comedy at Fox about a dozen strangers forced together on a jury for a long trial.
