The Lonely Island Boys Get Busy at Fox with Three New Shows

Rap group and all around good guys The Lonely Island are producing no less than three shows for Fox right now. Their comedy development company Party Over Here partnered with Fox back in January for a multi-year contract. Their first three shows will include the likes of Danni Pudi, Neal Brennan and Andre Hyland.

The group - consisting of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone - has already started putting the shows into development. Pilots and episodes are being produced and shown to Hulu and Roku but the goal is to get them on Fox or its sister channels FX or FXX.

The Lonely Island is also making a movie with Judd Apatow. Jiminy! Somebody tell these fellas to slow down and enjoy life. 

Below are descriptions of the shows. So read them and stuff.

When Tyler (Danny Pudi) moves to a new town, he finds himself in the middle of a series of supernatural occurrences. Are they really happening, or is it all in his head? Music video and commercial director Keith Schofield wrote and directed this surreal sci-fi comedy.

Hosted by comedian Neal Brennan (Chappelle’s Show), HOME FOR THE WEEKEND is a mockumentary-style half-hour comedy following a celebrity’s return trip to his or her hometown, where pleasant strolls down memory lane can take unexpected turns and reveal surprising backstories about high-profile stars. The first episode in production features The Lonely Island’s Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone back in Berkeley, CA, where they grew up.

Comedian Andre Hyland (Hollywood & Hyland) morphs into his uniquely hilarious band of characters and interacts with an unsuspecting public. Hyland writes, directs and stars in this outrageous show.
