PARENTHOOD’s Jason Katims and IRON MAN’s Jon Favreau To Team For NBC’s ABOUT A BOY: THE SERIES Pilot!!
Jon Favreau, who help score a big hit for NBC when he directed the pilot for “Revolution,” just signed to helm the network’s comedy pilot “About A Boy,” based on the 2002 movie and the novel by Nick Hornby.
The switch to comedy is no stretch for Favreau, who got big laughs out of big-screen efforts like “Made,” “Elf” and even “Iron Man.”
The pilot was written by Katims, who served as showrunner on two earlier NBC projects: “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood.”
“About A Boy” follows a wealthy man of leisure who strikes up a surprising friendship with the young and fatherless boy who moves in next door.
