TV Land Says Yes to Two New Sitcoms
TV Land announced they’re working on two “cast-contingent” new sitcoms: I’m Not Dead Yet and Brothers-in-Law. “With these pilot orders, TV Land continues down a path to build its own library of original sitcoms that will be paired up with some of the best sitcoms ever made,” stated Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. “This year, we are expanding beyond the multi-camera format – which has been so successful for us – to include one single-camera project. This is very exciting for TV Land as we continue to grow.”
According to TV Land, I’m Not Dead Yet follows a man who finds out “that he has a rare heart condition that could cause him to die at any moment, and so he decides to finally start speaking his mind and live life to the fullest.” Brothers-in-Law “revolves around the family dynamic between a husband and the eccentric fiancé of his wife’s twin sister. Although the men have nothing in common, the sisters constantly force them to bond.”
I’m Not Dead Yet is based on the Israeli format Zanzuri. Bill Martin and Mike Schiff wrote and executive produced Brothers-in-Law and will serve as showrunners.
