According to the Hollywood Reporter, FX has given script commitment to YouTube sensation Ray William Johnson on a comedy inspired by his life.
As you may remember, Johnson posted on his Facebook page back in January announcing his plans to begin pitching one of his shows to a few cable networks. Looks like he was successful.
The script will be penned by writers Mike Gagerman and Andrew Waller, whom both have worked on the movie “American Pie Presents Beta House”. The executive producers of this project will be Dave Becky and Troy Zien of 3 Arts’ Entertainment, a television production company that works on shows and produces independent films.
The Hollywood Reporter also notes that this project comes in lieu of FX’s preparations for the September launch of their comedy brand channel, FXX.
Apart from all this, Johnson and his girlfriend Anna Akana also started Runaway Planet, a trans-media entertainment studio that launched late last year. Check out their latest clip below which documents their journey.
