Rough House Pictures, home to Danny McBride and "Pineapple Express" hemler David Gordon Green, has inked a one-year deal with 20th Century Fox Television to develop both live-action and animated series.

McBride and Gordon Green run Rough House with Jody Hill, McBride's collabaroator on HBO's "Eastbound and Down," and Matt Reilly, an executive. This is the first network TV deal for the company, which has also made films like 2011's "Your Highness."

With "Eastbound" filming its third and final season, Rough House has expanded in the TV world. The group is producing the Comedy Central pilot "Black Jack" while Green created "Good Vibes," an animated comedy show coming to MTV.
