'Pushing Daisies's' Barry Sonnenfield Seeks 'Man'-ly Pursuits
David Katz's 'Things a Man Should Never Do Past 30' gets a shot at TV comedy
This advice and more may be coming to CBS in the form of the comedy "Things a Man Should Never Do Past 30" by executive producer/director Barry Sonnenfeld.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Emmy-winning "Pushing Daisies" producer will team up with Tannenbaum Co. and Sony Pictures TV to bring to life David Katz's humor book of 500 behaviors men reaching 30 should avoid.
Some of the other things mentioned in the book that a man shouldn't do once he's reached that age include: "Have any furniture that involves cinder blocks"; "See any movie with elves, mutants, Wookiees or other nonhuman characters on opening night"; "Figure out which dirty words are spelled by phone number"; and " Google ex-girlfriends."
Sonnenfeld will direct the potential pilot about a man working at a men's magazine who resists adulthood and is friends with an immersion journalist.
Katz is a contributing editor at Esquire. The project will be inspired by experiences by him and the magazine's editor at large/immersion journalist A.J. Jacobs.
