At yesterday's ABC upfront presentation at David Geffen Hall in New York City, ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey announced that celebrated television personality Jimmy Kimmel and renowned actor and screenwriter Justin Theroux are teaming up to produce a live sitcom special for the 2017/2018 season. The Untitled Kimmel and Theroux Project will bring viewers classic sitcom scripts from the 70s, 80s and 90s, to be acted out live by today's biggest names in comedy. "I spent most of my childhood in front of a TV set, obsessively watching comedies from great producers like Norman Lear, Jim Burrows, James L. Brooks and Garry Marshall," said Kimmel. "This is a way for a new generation of viewers to discover these classics and a new generation of actors to play characters they love, live in front of a studio audience." The Untitled Kimmel and Theroux Project will be produced by Smoking Baby Productions and taped in front of a live studio audience. Jimmy Kimmel and Justin Theroux serve as executive producers.
