FOX is giving a script commitment to the comedy series MODEL MINORITY from FRESH OFF THE BOAT co-executive producer Sanjay Shah and BASKETS creator/executive producer Jonathan Krisel. From Deadline:
Written by Shah, Model Minorities is a stereotype-busting comedy that follows a highly educated but struggling Indian-American who moves in with his uneducated, but rich, immigrant cousin.
Shah will executive produce with the husband-and-wife duo Krisel and Danica Radovanov. 20th Century Fox TV, where Shah is under an overall deal, is the studio.
Shah, who was a stand-up comedian, got his writing start on the Fox/20th TV animated comedy series King of the Hill. He was a co-executive producer on the Fox/20th TV comedy series Enlisted before joining ABC/20th TV’s Fresh Off the Boat, from creator/showrunner Nahnatchka Khan.
