ABC Nabs ‘Start Up’ Comedy Written by HUMANITAS Trustee Matt Tarses
Scrubs star Zach Braff is returning to series television and to ABC as the star of Start Up, a single-camera comedy, which has received a put pilot commitment. Braff, who also is set to direct, is reuniting with Scrubs co-executive producer Matt Tarses on the Sony TV/Davis Entertainment project, which ABC landed in a competitive situation with multiple networks pursuing.
Written by Tarses, Start Up is based on the podcast Start Up by Alex Blumberg. It is a show about all the things that happen — the good, the bad and the ugly — when a guy (Braff) in his mid-30s with a wife and two kids makes the crazy decision to quit his good job and dive into the brave new world of starting a business. (The title of the comedy will likely change as it matches the name of a new Crackle drama series.)
