TruTV continues to lean towards a comedy-heavy line-up by ordering their first scripted comedy pilot, Those Who Can’t. The show was originally part of Amazon’s first original pilot wave. While it got some buzz, Amazon decided not to take the show to series. According to Deadline, TruTV is giving it another shot and will shoot a new pilot for the network.
The series was created by and stars a trio of Denver comics known as The Grawlix. Consisting of Adam Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl, and Ben Roy the three play a huge role in the ever-growing Denver comedy scene, including hosting a monthly stand-up show. The original pilot stars The Grawlix trio as “three dysfunctional high school teachers who are as screwed-up as the kids they teach. When an entitled bully decides to make their lives miserable, they go to ridiculous lengths to exact revenge.”
We’re liking the new direction TruTV is taking with the addition of sketch show Friends of the People, and hopefully, now Those Who Can’t.
