NBC has bought the script for “Two to Go,” a comedy about two single guys surrounded by their friends’ kids, from executive producer Jason Bateman and two writers of MTV’s “The Hard Times of R.J. Berger.”
Writers Bryan Shukoff and Kevin Chesley will executive produce with the “Arrested Development” star and James Garavente through Bateman’s Aggregate Films. The Universal Television project follows the last two singles in a group of friends moving into marriage and parenthood. They barhop Friday nights, and moon bounce with their friends’ children on Saturday mornings.
Shukoff and Chesley are currently writing the remake of “Summer School” at Paramount for Happy Madison.
The Aggregate Films production banner, which has a first-look deal with Universal Pictures and Television, has also aligned with “Seinfeld” writer Spike Feresten for “Wife Nanny,” which Fox bought in September. The half-hour sitcom follows a sports executive who secretly hires a gay best friend for his wife, hoping it will help his marriage.
Aggregate Films is also planning for the mid-season debut of the single-camera NBC comedy “Growing Up Fisher,” from writer and executive producer DJ Nash. It stars Jenna Elfman and JK Simmons.
Shukoff and Chesley are represented by CAA, Mosaic, and attorney Gregg Gellman. Bateman is represented by CAA.
