It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia Stars Creating Sitcom About Game Dev Team
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia will soon be premiering its 13th season, putting it among the longest lasting shows in television history. With the show’s longevity, reduced number of episodes per season and loose scheduling rules by FX, the show’s stars have been free to work on other projects in addition to It’s Always Sunny.
Rob McElhenney, until recently, was attached to direct the upcoming Minecraft movie, and Charlie Day has worked on films like Pacific Rim and Horrible Bosses. Now, it seems the two will take on yet another show, with their new project being a television sitcom focused on a game development team.
As shared on The Hollywood Reporter, Apple has announced that they have made a full series order for a new sitcom created by Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day that will air exclusively on Apple Music. The series will reportedly be “set in a video game development studio and will explore the intricacies of the human condition through hilarious and innovative ways.”
The duo will serve as executives producers, and McElhenney will also act in the series as well. Both Rob and Charlie have also been producing a new sitcom starring Leah Remini for Fox which will also co-star It’s Always Sunny’s Kaitlin Olson.
While there’s no word yet on what sort of games the fictional dev team in the show will work on, we do know that Ubisoft’s Gerard Guillemot, Jason Altman, and Danielle Kreinik will also executive produce the show. Could the likes of the Rabbids or the Assassins appear in the show? Only time will tell.
Until then, the project is certainly in good hands with a proven track record for comedy as refreshing as a rum ham on a summer’s day. What do you guys think of this new sitcom by the stars of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia? Let us know in the comments below!
