Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg Producing Superhero and Illuminati Comedy Series
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg sure seem to be loving the TV world. They've already developed the awesome AMC series Preacher and the upcoming Hulu show Future Man. Now they are set to produce and help develop two upcoming comedy series.
The first project is a superhero-themed show that is set up at Fox. It's being developed by Mike Rosolio (Lemmings), and it "centers on an ambitious MIT graduate who gets a job working for a Steve Jobs-esque tech genius, only to learn he’s also a vigilante superhero by night forcing her to become the unwitting Alfred to his Batman."
The second series is set up at ABC and focuses on the Illuminati, which is a society that a lot of conspiracy theorists love to talk about. That show is being developed by Brad Copeland (Life In Pieces, The Inbetweeners), and it "centers on a young couple struggles to balance marriage and suburban life with the fact that one of them is in the Illuminati."
Rogen and Goldberg both have a great eye for good comedy, and I don't think they would attach their names to anything that they don't think has the potential to be great. Both these projects seem like they have promise, and I'm sure they'll be worth looking forward to.
