Ben Stiller producing new comedy series ‘Big Time in Hollywood, FL’

By Marcina Zaccaria,

Comedy Central will be going ahead with a new comedy series called Big Time in Hollywood, FL produced by Ben Stiller’s Red Hour and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

The new series is a half-hour long and is the story of two brothers trying to make their way in the world. The series will feature NYU alums Alex Anfanger and Dan Schimpf. Kathy Baker and Stephen Tobolowsky will play the brothers’ parents, and Jon Bass is set to co-star. Anfanger, who is the writer and executive producer of the series, will deliver 10 episodes to Comedy Central, according to Variety. It is not yet known when the first episode will air.

Stiller joked about the tone of Big Time, telling Deadline that it “combines the directorial style of Hitchcock, the acting prowess of Streep, the budget of House Of Payne, and the nutritional value of Velveeta. I think people’s minds will be blown wide open. For real.”

Stiller’s Red Hour Films also produced DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story, Starsky and Hutch and Blades of Glory.
