The author behind the Twitter account @ShitMyDadSays which is, indeed, a chronicle of the stuff the author’s father says, has already landed a book deal.
Now we’re hearing that Justin Halpern has parlayed his Twittering into a sitcom.
What? Really? Yes.
“Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick are on board to executive produce and supervise the writing for the multicamera family comedy, which Halpern will co-pen with Patrick Schumacker,” writes Hollywood Reporter. “Halpern and Schumacker will also co-exec produce the Warner Bros. TV-produced project, which has received a script commitment.”
FYI: Hollywood Reporter notes that the show’s title “will change if it gets on the air.”
Now that’s an internet success story.
