Fox Orders Filthy Sexy Teen$, Drive Share, & Grand Marquee Series
The first slate of projects to be produced under Fox’s multiplatform deal with “Burning Love” team Keith Quinn and Jonathan Stern’s Abominable Pictures includes at least one very search engine-friendly title: “Filthy Sexy Teen$,” which received an eight-episode order and will have its global premiere on YouTube multichannel network Fullscreen in North America.
The half-hour comedy centers on two wealthy teen siblings who return home after being thought lost at sea and attempt to reclimb the high school social ladder. It is created by Curtis Gwinn (“NTSF:SD:SUV::,” “The Walking Dead”), Paul Scheer (“Fresh Off the Boat,” “The League”) and Stern.
“We are pleased to announce this first slate of projects, which are a direct result of the unique creative freedom and flexibility of this venture,” said Quinn and Stern. “The talented creators we are working with see the benefit in being able to shoot something right away without a long development process. A finished piece often represents a show better than a pitch or a script can.”
The full slate is listed below, although Fox notes that an additional wave of production is scheduled for the coming months.
