A sitcom about a game developer is on the way from the creators of It’s Always Sunny

Game development is now a source of sitcom laughs

A sitcom about game development is in development, has a cast, and perhaps most shockingly of all, might be good. It’s coming courtesy of Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, stars and creative voices of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. McElhenney has a major role, and the rest of the cast includes everyone from Community’s Danny Pudi to nerd superstar Ashly Burch.

So even if we’ve got a Witcher Netflix series on the way, this might be the videogame show to watch for. According to Deadline, “the cutting-edge comedy is set in a video game development studio and will explore the intricacies of the human condition through hilarious and innovative ways.”

McElhenney will play the studio’s creative director in the series. Pudi features as “Brad, an alpha male who works in the monetization department at the studio” and Burch is “Rachel, who feels undervalued in her role as a game tester.” F. Murray Abraham, Imani Hakim, David Hornsby, Charlotte Nicdao, and Jessie Ennis fill out the cast, and brief details on their roles are detailed by Deadline.

The series was ordered by Apple last year, and looks to be part of the company’s upcoming Netflix-style streaming service.

Exactly how long it’ll be until Apple’s service goes live – and then, when this series begins – remains to be seen.

Coincidentally, we just put up a list of games to play while watching Netflix. We’ll need to do some more extensive testing, but early results suggest that they should work just fine with shows on any streaming service.
