Paramount Digital Entertainment, the studio behind projects such as Burning Love and The Hotwives of Orlando, is adding another star-powered project to the mix. The studio will produce workplace comedy Resident Advisors from Pitch Perfect producers Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman.

The husband-and-wife team will executive produce the project, a workplace comedy from writers Taylor Jenkins Reid and Alex Reid, through their Brownstone Productions banner. Ira Ungerleider (Friends) has also joined the project as executive producer and director. Natalia Anderson will produce. 

The series, about a group of resident advisors in a college dorm, stars Ryan Hansen (Burning Love), Jamie Chung (Hangover II), Alison Rich (College Humor Originals), Andrew Bachelor (House of Lies) and Graham Rogers (Revolution) and also features Pitch Perfect's Anna Camp.

"No subject is off limits for the talented creators and cast of Resident Advisors, with its irreverent take on the absurdities of freshman year at college," said Paramount Digital president Amy Powell. "Elizabeth, Max and the team at Brownstone have developed an ambitious and fun comedy that is perfectly suited for this format, and we are thrilled to have it mark our first collaboration with them."

Added Banks, "We are thrilled to be collaborating with Paramount Digital Entertainment on this outrageously funny take on modern-day dorm life in America. Amy and her team have a terrific track record for creating boldly entertaining content in this comedic medium and we look forward to a successful partnership."
