Craig Robinson and Adam Scott are teaming up for a supernatural comedy pilot for Fox.
Deadline reports that Robinson (The Office, Eastbound and Down, Mr. Robot) and Scott (Party Down, Parks and Rec, The Greatest Event in Television History) are set to star in and executive produce Ghosted, a single-camera comedy from Tom Gormican (That Awkward Moment).
Ghosted pairs up Robinson’s skeptic with Scott’s paranormal “true believer” as they are approached by The Bureau Underground to investigate strange activity in Los Angeles. Gormican’s series will also see the two leads solving a larger mystery that may pose a threat to humanity.
Robinson just had a pretty major arc in season 2 of USA’s critically acclaimed Mr. Robot and he is also set to reprise his role of Doug Judy on Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine this season. Scott most recently appeared as the head of “The Bad Place” on Michael Schur’s The Good Place and will next be seen in HBO’s Big Little Lies alongside Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley. Scott and his wife, Naomi Scott, are also an impressive producing team, working together on The Greatest Event in Television History, The Overnight, Other People and Fun Mom Dinner.
Ghosted is written by Gormican and executive produced by Gormican, Scott, Robinson, Mark Schulman and Oly Obst. Kevin Etten (Workaholics) will serve as showrunner and executive produce.
