“Captain America: Civil War” directors Joe and Anthony Russo are developing a pot comedy at Showtime, TheWrap has learned.

The half-hour sitcom focuses on a larcenous family of marijuana dealers whose world is turned upside down when their illegal enterprise suddenly becomes legal in their home state.

As the family struggles to adapt to the strange new world of legitimate business, they are forced to depend upon the business acumen of their son, whose straight and narrow leanings have always made him a “black sheep” in this clan of reprobates.

In addition to the Russos (pictured above), the project will also be executive produced and written by comedian Moshe Kasher and writer/actor Zach Cregger. Mike Larocca will serve as a producer, under the Russo’s Getaway Productions banner.

The comedy marks a return to TV for Joe and Anthony Russo, who previously executive produced and directed “Community,” “Happy Endings,” and directed an “Arrested Development” run.
