The Weitz brothers have added a third project to their TV development slate, teaming with scribe Angela Nissel (“Scrubs”) for a half-hour NBC comedy about an interracial family.
Chris and Paul Weitz will exec produce via their NBC U TV Studios-based Depth of Field banner, headed by Andrew Miano. Pilot script will be written and exec produced by Nissel, who inked an overall deal with the Peacock earlier this year (Daily Variety, June 26).
Miano and Depth of Field’s Kerry Kohansky will join the Weitz brothers in producing the project.
Potential skein revolves around the Wollensky Washingtons, a newlywed interracial couple trying to blend three generations of their families, all with very different views on race, gender and other issues.
