Comedy Central Taking ‘Tiny Apartment’ Series to Pilot
In what seems to be part of a maneuver to convert the whole of the internet into TV, it seems today that Comedy Central is taking yet another revered web series to pilot. Previously, we learned that 'Drunk History' would get its own show, and blog 'Bad Advice From My Brother' would be developed, and now it seems 'Tiny Apartment' is moving on up as well.
Deadline has announced that Comedy Central will move forward with a pilot order for internet web series 'Tiny Apartment,' converting it to a full half-hour show. Executive produced, written by and starring Jessie Cantrell, Mike O’Gorman and Pat Driscoll the series centers around a young couple, Jessie (Cantrell) and Mike (O’Gorman), living in a dilapidated New York City apartment. Though their building is not structurally sound, and their neighbors can often be troublesome, they "make the best of their situation with a little help from beer, take out, and their best friend, Pat (Driscoll)."
Also executive producing the pilot episode will be Joe Kelly and Mosaic’s Jimmy Miller and Sam Hansen, along with director Tristram Shapeero ('Community'). 'Tiny Apartment' marks yet another internet series taken to TV, following news of 'Drunk History' and 'Bad Advice From My Brother' being taken to series.
