On the TV side, the writers recently closed a deal for the comedy pilot, Committed, which is to be produced by 40 Years a Prisoner‘s Confluential Films.

Broussard, Obayuwana and Savage previously wrote and executive produced Netflix’s romantic comedy feature, #RealityHigh. First working together on YouTube sketch show Purple Stuff TV, the trio earned their name while rewriting 2016 romantic comedy, The Perfect Match. Upon completing their work, an executive on the project called the trio to note that they had “killed the script,” and thus, the Murder Ink moniker was born.

Murder Ink continues to be repped by Joel VanderKloot of VanderKloot Law.
