JONATHAN STERN AND KEITH QUINN ANNOUNCE FIRST SLATE OF PROJECTS FOR FOX'S MULTI-PLATFORM PROGRAMMING

New Series "Filthy Sexy Teen$" Gets Series Order From Fullscreen

FOX, in collaboration with Keith Quinn and Jonathan Stern, announced today the first several projects that are underway for their comedy development venture. The projects, executive-produced by Stern and Quinn via Stern's Abominable Pictures, include half-hour comedy "Filthy Sexy Teen$," which just received an eight-episode order from Fullscreen.

"We are pleased to announce this first slate of projects, which are a direct result of the unique creative freedom and flexibility of this venture," said Quinn and Stern. "The talented creators we are working with see the benefit in being able to shoot something right away without a long development process. A finished piece often represents a show better than a pitch or a script can."

Descriptions and auspices for these new projects, which are being produced for distribution via a range of digital and/or linear platforms, are as follows:

"Filthy Sexy Teen$"

Two wealthy teen siblings, thought to be lost at sea, return home and attempt to re-climb the high school social ladder in this half-hour comedy. Created by Curtis Gwinn ("NTSF:SD:SUV::," "The Walking Dead"), Paul Scheer ("Fresh Off The Boat," "The League") and Jonathan Stern ("Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp," "Childrens Hospital," "Burning Love"). Keith Quinn ("Burning Love," "Jackass 3.5," "LXD") and Stern serve as executive producers with Gwinn and Scheer. The series will have its global premiere on Fullscreen in North America.

"Drive Share"

With an all-star comedic cast that includes Rob Huebel ("Despicable Me," AXE COP) and Paul Scheer, "Drive Share" follows a group of drivers as they shuttle strangers, and their problems, around town. Created by Huebel and Scheer. Jonathan Stern, Keith Quinn, Huebel and Scheer are executive producers.

"Criminal Records"

One record label has taken it upon itself to fix the music industry: Criminal Records. It's run by Jace (Brooks Gray, "The Amazing Gayl Pile," "Cock'd Gunns") and Lyle (Morgan Waters, "The Amazing Gayl Pile," "Cock'd Gunns"), two out-of-touch music execs who see themselves as the saviors of rock 'n' roll. Created by Gray and Waters and executive-produced along with Keith Quinn, Jonathan Stern, Paul Scheer and Becca Kinskey ("Childrens Hospital," "Adult Swim Late Night Infomercials").

"Grand Marquee"

Jerry Minor ("Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," "Black-ish") depicts an old-school rapper struggling both to regain relevancy in the hip-hop world and to maintain a relationship with his son - as told through the lens of a Danish news program. Created by Jerry Minor and John Matta ("The Martin Short Show," "Steve Harvey's Big Time Challenge") who will executive-produce, along with Keith Quinn, Jonathan Stern and Paul Scheer.

Stern and Quinn's slate is growing rapidly, with an additional wave of production scheduled for the coming months.
