Fox is developing Nick Thomas and Jake Johnson’s action comedy series 100 GRAND. The single camera project, from 20th Century Fox TV and Walcott Co., was given a script commitment plus penalty and follows two guys who pay off a debt for a local crime boss, learning to grow up in the process. Thomas penned the script and will executive produce with Johnson, Max Winkler, Dave Becky, Oly Obst and Jonathan Berry.
Thomas and Johnson have collaborated before on the 20th Century Fox action comedy feature “Let’s Be Cops,” with Thomas penning the script with director Luke Greenfield and Johnson starring with Damon Wayans Jr. The film was Thomas’ feature writing debut. Johnson is known for playing Nick on Fox’s “New Girl” and will star in Colin Trevorrow’s upcoming “Jurassic World.”
