Irish comedian Dylan Moran has signed a deal with ABC to create and star in his own pilot, Deadline reports. It’s Moran’s first time working in American television, having co-created and starred in the beloved British sitcom Black Books.
Nooooooo! They’ll ruin whatever he comes up with. It’s on ABC so it’ll be watered-down, “family friendly” crap. American sitcoms on any of the “three letter” networks are, for the most part, mindless trash aimed at the lowest common denominator. I can practically guarantee that if this pilot is picked up, it’ll end up a shite-com by the time the full series airs. Sigh.
