Family Guy writers Wellesley Wild, Kevin Biggins and Mike Desilets have sold an untitled comedy pitch about dads to Universal Pictures. The feature, which will be produced by Bluegrass Films’ Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark, centers on a group of enthusiastically overweight dads who get a wake-up call when a member of their group has a heart attack, forcing them to abruptly change their hard-drinking and hard-eating lifestyle.
In addition to his role as executive producer on Family Guy, Wild wrote the Ted movies, A Million Ways To Die In The West, and co-created Fox’s Seth Green-Giovanni Ribisi comedy Dads. Desilets is a Family Guy producer and also worked on The Cleveland Show. Biggins is a co-executive producer on Family Guy and has written for The Cleveland Show, Tosh.0, and Frank TV.
