Fox has put in development Mr. Black, a single-camera half-hour comedy based on the praised Australian series, from original series’ creator Adam Zwar and producer CJZ, Gail Berman and Fox Entertainment-owned SideCar.
Created by Zwar and CJZ based on the Network Ten series, it follows the acid-tongued Mr. Black, a man who has one dying wish: to break up his adult daughter and her boyfriend — whom he happens to live with.
