Hulu continues to quietly pump out quality content and keep itself afloat amidst the cut-throat streaming wars. Up next, the streamer is ordering a new comedy series from the co-creator of Modern Family, Steve Levitan. Additionally, as first reported by Deadline, the project is enlisting the services of Keegan-Michael Key and Johnny Knoxville as its leading men.
The series, titled Reboot, is inspired by Hollywood’s recent wave of TV revivals. When a streaming service decides to reboot a fan-favorite family sitcom from the early 2000s, the show’s original cast comes back together and is forced to deal with their unresolved personal issues.
Steve Levitan is co-writing the pilot’s script alongside iZombie scribe John Enbom. 20th Television will produce and distribute the show with Levitan, Enbom, and Danielle Stokdyk (Veronica Mars) executive producing.
Keegan-Michael Key currently finds himself in the middle of sort of a career hot-streak. The actor recently turned in memorable musical performances in the Netflix movies The Prom and Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey. Moreover, the actor currently stars alongside SNL star Cecily Strong in Apple TV‘s Schmigadoon. Up next, Key will lend his voice to Disney’s CGI/live-action adaptation of Pinocchio. Meanwhile, Johnny Knoxville’s claim to fame stems from co-creating and starring in MTV’s reality stunt show Jackass. However, the performer also touts roles in films like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Above Suspicion. Additionally, Knoxville will return to his roots in the upcoming comedy film Jackass Forever.
