Jimmy Fallon isn’t the only actor/comedian producing comedies for networks. Ben Stillers’s Red Hour Films is producing Please Knock, a partially-autobiographical comedy about an A-list actor who moves his family back to the same New York building he grew up in. Where the title comes in is that his parents still live in the building. The title character, Mitch Fuller, lives a life loosely based off of Stiller’s.
I’m not one to particularly enjoy the ABC breed of comedies (except for Modern Family, but who doesn’t?), but it’ll be nice to see this come to fruition. It could go in the direction of Everybody Hates Chris…or not. We’ll see.
