Mr. Black gets writers for US adaptation
Creators of Huge in France and The Grinder will work on US adaptation of Adam Zwar comedy.
The US adaptation of 10 comedy Mr. Black will be written by Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul, creators of Huge in France and The Grinder.
News of an adaptation for FOX emerged in August, from creator Adam Zwar plus CJZ, Gail Berman and FOX Entertainment-owned SideCar.
Adam Zwar told TV Tonight, “Amanda Brotchie (co-writer/director) and I were big fans of The Grinder. So when we saw Andrew and Jarrad were on board to write the US version we were very happy. It’s in good hands. Can’t wait to see what they do with the show.”
Mr. Black premiered on 10 in May, written by Zwar and Brotchie. It starred Stephen Curry, Nadine Garner, Sophie Wright, Angela Geraldine Black, Nick Russell and Paul Denny.
10 is yet to announce a second season.
