The project is a half-hour, single camera comedy about a Gen Z, a millennial, and a Gen X woman who work together in the marketing department of a huge corporation, and wind up deeply influencing each other’s work and personal lives.

Bennett recently worked as a co-exec producer on the Disney+ reboot of Doogie Howser, which Mar was an exec producer on, and was also a co-exec producer on ABC’s Single Parents as well as a supervising producer on FX’s You’re the Worst.

Mar has also exec produced series including Fresh Off The Boat and Bless This Mess and is working on American Born Chinese, action-comedy series based on the 2006 graphic novel by Gene Luen Yang that recently scored a series order at Disney+.

He and his producing partner Jake Kasdan are also under an overall deal with 20th Television.

Bennett is represented by UTA and Jackoway Austen Tyerman.
