Apple has given a straight-to-series order to a half-hour scripted comedy from Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, Variety has learned.
The series is set in a video game development studio, with McElhenney also attached to star in addition to writing and executive producing alongside Day. The series marks the duo’s first collaboration as writers since “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” McElhenney co-created “It’s Always Sunny” with both he and Day starring and serving as executive producers on that show.
Apple and Ubisoft working together on a show from the It’s Always Sunny crew. What a weird world we live in.
If I said that sentence five years ago, you’d think that I were playing pop-culture bingo.
