“We knew from the beginning that No Activity was something very unique, and following its huge success on Stan, we’re delighted to be able to bring this hilarious new series to Stan subscribers, featuring some of the best comedic talent in the world.” said Nick Forward, Stan’s Chief Content Officer.
“With No Activity as CBS All Access’ first original comedy, we’re delivering our subscribers a new, premium series that continues to push artistic boundaries in interesting ways,” said Marc DeBevoise, President and Chief Operating Officer, CBS Interactive. “This is definitely not your average comedy; in addition to the all-star comedic cast, we have the incomparable creative team of Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Funny Or Die behind the series who are innovators in their field and will undoubtedly keep viewers laughing each week.”
No Activity, a comedy series from executive producers Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Funny Or Die, is the latest Stan Original Series’ partnership with a Hollywood studio after Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, which is currently airing on Stan.
In what should be a high stakes sting operation, No Activity celebrates the mundane. Set against the world of a major drug cartel bust, the series follows two low-level cops who have spent far too much time in a car together; two criminals who are largely kept in the dark; two dispatch workers who haven’t really clicked; and two Mexican tunnelers who are in way too small a space considering they’ve only just met.
No Activity is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Funny Or Die and Gary Sanchez Productions, and is based on the Stan Original Series of the same name, Stan’s first local commission and produced by Jungle. The series is co-created and executive produced by Trent O’Donnell and Patrick Brammall, alongside executive producers Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Jason Burrows and Joe Farrell. Trent O’Donnell will direct all episodes.
Updated: New episodes weekly from Monday, November 20 on Stan.
