J.J Abrams pilot Adulting a go at Fox


“Adulting”, a new comedy from “Star Trek” helmer J.J Abram’s Bad Robot shingle, has landed at Fox with a put pilot commitment.

Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein wrote the half-hour comedy, which is based on the upcoming book ‘Adulting: How To Become A Grown-Up In 387 Easy(ish) Steps’ by Oregon-based journalist Kelly Williams Brown.

The book is based on the blog of the same name.

Says Deadline, “The blog is described as a quirky, humorous guide on how to become an adult. In it, she dishes out advice on a wide range of issues, from how to take care of your basic human needs, how to discuss politics with friends, how not to look like a slut at work, how to deal with dangerous toasters and how to shut down office creepers.”

The humour of the blog/book/series is said to be in the same vein of Fox’s “New Girl”.
