Awesome news for our buddy Robert Kelly as he’ll get the chance too star in his own comedy series on FX. He musta really made a great impression with the network brass while co-starring in Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll as he once again teamed up with his production team Apostle to develop the series at the network.
Kelly will star, co-write, and executive produce the project with Apostle’s main production trio of Denis Leary, Jim Serpico, and Tom Sellitti who have developed many TV shows like Maron, Rescue Me, Benders, and Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll. The comedy will autobiographically based on Kelly’s life of beating addition while struggling with the biggest one of all, his dependency on food. Something he draws a lot of his comedy from and discusses quite often on his popular YKWD Podcast.
The show is not yet titled and will pick up when Kelly’s compulsive habits cause him to lose the important things in his life and forces him on a journey to find happiness and purpose.
We can’t 100% confirm this, but we’re fairly certain this photo captured the exact moment Bobby sealed the deal when he had to take a few calls when he visited our offices earlier this year. What do you think?
