1. Weird Like Us (TBA)
‘Weird Like Us’ is a long-gestating TV series for Fox, developed by Ed Helms and former Colbert Report writer Max Werner. The single-camera series revolves around a pair of rebels who advocate biodiesel for cars and beekeeping in the backyard. They consider themselves counter-culture icons in modern times. But the rebels find themselves at the center of a grave family crisis when their own children decide to rebel against their parents by going mainstream. Emmy winner Max Werner, known for ‘The Colbert Show,’ has written the screenplay. Helms serves as the executive producer of the TV under the banner of his studio, Pacific Electric Picture Co.
The series is a part of the trend of reboots and extended family comedies for the new generation viewers who’ve only known about the cult names from the internet. As reboots and family comedies dominate streaming platforms, networks are also keen to strike deals with studios to make crime and military thrillers with cliff-hangers to tune viewers each week. Reboots are the next big thing in the streaming universe right now. Fox is eyeing reboots of their hits like ‘ Lethal Weapon,’ ‘Fatal Attraction,’ ‘Urban Cowboy,’ ‘Training Day,’ and ‘Behind Enemy Lines.’ CBS is catching up with reboot plans of movies like ‘Nancy Drew,’ ‘MacGyver’ and H.G. Wells’ ‘The Island of Dr. Moreau.’ As Disney+ and Apple TV+ penetrate the already chaotic VOD market, more cult classics will be reincarnated as contemporary shows and future cults.
