What happens when you get a group full of great comedy minds together for a new series? You get UNprofessionals.
The series, which was announced yesterday, has a simple premise. It will follow a group of the least important people working at one of the world’s most important places: the United Nations.
The idea alone has room full potential certainly, but it’s the minds involved that really drive this home. The show, which was picked up by CBS and will be produced by Lionsgate Television, is to be produced by Seth Rogen and his partner Evan Goldberg, with a script by Andy Schwartz (Scrubs) and comedy duo the Sklar Brothers. Additionally, Jay Chandrasekhar of Broken Lizard/Super Troopers fame is to direct the pilot.
No word on when the series is to be going into production or who will lead the cast, but with these funny men involved, the show can’t get made fast enough for our liking.
