‘Partridge Family’-Style Musical Comedy in the Works at Fox

By Reid Makamura via The Wrap on 10/5/18

Fox has given a script order with penalty to a “Partridge Family”-like comedy about a family band from “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life” creator Jay Lacopo.

“An American Band” follows the “harmonic and discordant adventures of The Wyldes, a diverse and dysfunctional Northern California family that can’t get a single thing right with each other, except for the music they’ve been making for the last 25 years as a multigenerational family band.”

Lacopo will write and executive produce the single-camera comedy alongside Gail Berman and Joe Earley of Jackal Group.

 Jackal Group will produce the project with 20th Century Fox Television, reuniting the company with Lacopo following his short-lived series starring Jack Cutmore Scott.
