Apple has reportedly ordered a series based on Min Jin Lee’s novel, Pachinko.
Variety further reports that the company has also added a new comedy by a couple of members of the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia gang.
The half-hour scripted sitcom will be penned by Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, with McElhenney taking the lead as an employee at a video game studio. Along with RCG (the pair’s production company) and Lionsgate, the show will also, fittingly, be co-produced by Ubisoft, which should add a bit of authenticity to the thing — and hopefully not too much product placement.
Details are scant otherwise, and Day, McElhenney and the rest of the Sunny gang are set to return for a 14th season of that show, which could complicate scheduling. Most people would agree that It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is among the funniest sitcoms of the past decade, and the show’s sensibilities should translate pretty well to the new setting.
Apple is definitely on a row and appears unstoppable.
