Development News - November 16, 2017

FOX's Cool Kids.

  • Comedy veterans Vicki Lawrence, David Alan Grier, Leslie Jordan and Martin Mull have been cast in the lead roles on the comedy pilot written by Charlie Day and Paul Fruchbom. Furthermore, Don Scardino has signed on to direct the pilot. Lawrence will play Margaret, the brash, hotheaded new arrival to the retirement community who thinks that the "Cool Kids" are a trio of cheesepuffs that she can easily herd, corral and buffalo. Grier will play Hank, a mischievous schemer and one of the "Cool Kids" living in Shady Meadows retirement community with his three best friends from his childhood in Brooklyn. Jordan will play Sid, a cautious hypochondriac with a weird streak about him. Mull will play Charlie, the gruff third "Cool Kid" who is not a leader like Hank nor a follower like Sid, but who tends to go along with the consensus of the group.
