Development News - October 14, 2014

HBO's Codes of Conduct and MTV's Ken Jeong Made Me Do It.

  • The premium cable network has officially given the pilot production greenlight to Codes of Conduct, co-written by Steve McQueen and Matthew Michael Carnahan, after casting newcomer Devon Terrell in the lead role. McQueen and Carnahan executive produce with Russell Simmons, Iain Canning and Emile Sherman. The project centers on Beverly Snow (Terrell), a young man from Queens as talented as he is ambiguous. His self-confidence will enable him to break into the social circles of Manhattan's elite, testing the boundaries of access and social mobility. Throughout the series, Beverly's ability will grant him access to a life larger in every way than the one to which he was born. His chameleon-like approach to life will test his nerve as he takes his future into his own hands.
  • Marshall Allman (True Blood) has landed the co-lead opposite Ken Jeong on the comedy pilot. Bonnie Dennison and Justin Hires have also joined the cast today. Allman will play Andy, a young everyman who catches his girlfriend cheating and rear-ends Ken (Jeong) in the same day. Dennison will play Molly, Andy's best friend who acts like one of the guys but there is some unexplored chemistry between them. Hires will play Paul, Andy's other friend who is a ball of manic energy with no filter.
