IFC developing several series from UCB alumni

Aug 17, 2017

IFC announced a development slate for the 2018 season including three projects from UCB alumni.  Congratulations to creators Jocelyn DeBoer & Dawn Luebbe, Carl Foreman Jr. and Josh Ruben.

Greener Grass
Based on a short film of the same name, the small town of Greener
Grass is a living Norman Rockwell painting whose welcome sign boasts
“Nothing bad ever happens here.” However, beneath the town’s gilded
facade lies a world of bad things happening. Starring, written and
executive produced by Upright Citizens Brigade alums Jocelyn DeBoer and
Dawn Luebbe.

Frank and Lamar
Based on the IFC Comedy Crib series, Frank and Lamar are two
best friends who live together and work together as middle school
teachers in New York City. Workplace drama and romance issues cause
havoc in their otherwise smooth friendship so they are forced to decide
whether to stick together or go it alone. Created by and starring Carl
Foreman Jr.
and Anthony Gaskins.


Lee’s Kill List
Trapped in an oppressive work environment, Lee takes matters into her
own hands by killing the bullies and bosses that threaten her job as a
cleaning solution salesperson. Created, written and directed by Josh
Ruben
and Vince Peone (joshandvince.com)
