'Always Sunny' Trio Heads To FOX
FOX orders 'Boldly Going Nowhere' from Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton
According to the industry trade papers, the "Boldly Going Nowhere" project stems from McElhenney, Day and Howerton's newly signed two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV.
Under the terms of the deal, "Always Sunny" will always be in first position for McElhenney, Day and Howerton. The FX comedy has already been renewed for a fourth season.
The original idea for "Nowhere" reportedly came from the trio's assistant, Adam Stein. FOX has ordered a pilot plus five addition scripts for the comedy, which focuses on the occasionally boring day-to-day life on an intergalactic spaceship with a unpredictable captain.
McElhenney, Day and Howerton wouldn't star in "Boldly Going Nowhere" and the pilot won't shoot until October, after post-production is completed on the new "Always Sunny" season.
