Another production deal for Jim and his team...

From Deadline Hollywood

Jim Parsons-Produced Comedy ‘The Monarchy Is Going To S***’ From Amy Reed In The Works At Quibi

EXCLUSIVE: Quibi has put into development The Monarchy Is Going to S***, a comedy from writer Amy Reed (Diary of a Female President), Jim Parsons’ That’s Wonderful Productions and Warner Bros. TV.

Written by Reed, The Monarchy Is Going To S*** is set in the modern-day kingdom of Andova, where the lives of twin princesses are thrown into utter disarray when the King’s newly discovered illegitimate son is named as the rightful heir to the throne. But the two irreverent princesses won’t exactly go away quietly, not when they believe The Monarchy Is Going To S***.

Reed executive produces with That’s Wonderful’s Parsons and Todd Spiewak. Eric Norsoph, That’s Wonderful’s Head of Production and Development, co-executive produces and will oversee the project for the production company. Warner Bros. TV, where That’s Wonderful is under a deal, is the studio.

From The Hollywood Reporter

Greg Berlanti, Jim Parsons Team for LGBTQ-Focused Docuseries at HBO Max

Titled Equal, the four-part docuseries chronicles the landmark events and forgotten heroes of the LGBTQ+ movement. Each hourlong episode brings to life the stakes and deadlines of historical events that have not yet been given their due. The series will feature high-end re-enactments, never-before-seen footage and capture the emotions of the times with messages just as relevant as today, HBO Max says. 

LGBTQ+ pioneers featured in the series will include Harry Hay, the Daughters of Bilitis, Christine Jorgensen and Bayard Rustin. The fourth episode chronicles the Stonewall Riots from start to finish as well as the first Pride event, the year after Stonewall. 

The series hails from Warner Horizon Unscripted TV's new documentary unit. Berlanti and Parsons — who each have overall deals with Warner Horizon parent Warner Bros. TV — will exec produce via their respective production companies, Berlanti Productions and That's Wonderful Productions. Mike Darnell, president of unscripted and alternative at Warner Bros., will oversee alongside Brooke Karzen. Scout Productions' David Collins, Michael Williams (The Fog of War), Rob Eric (Queer Eye) and Joel Chiodi will exec produce. Berlanti Productions topper Sarah Schechter will also exec produce for the company. Parsons' husband and That's Wonderful partner Todd Spiewak will also exec produce. Raintree Ventures' Jon Jashni (Lost in Space) will also exec produce.

'Special' Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix

This holiday season is a special time of year for Ryan O'Connell.

Netflix has renewed Special, the Emmy-nominated shortform comedy series based on O'Connell's memoir, for a second season.

The semiautobiographical series, exec produced by Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons, will return for an additional eight episodes. It's unclear if the comedy — which received four Emmy nominations in the shortform categories — will continue to be 15 minutes in length. O'Connell has previously been vocal about wanting to expand to the more traditional half-hour running time, telling The Hollywood Reporter that the reduced length was "frustrating" in that he couldn't explore other characters in the season's storytelling.  

In addition to starring in the comedy about a gay man with mild cerebral palsy who decides to rewrite his own identity, O'Connell wrote and exec produced all eight episodes of season one. Unlike with season one, O'Connell previously told THR that he'd like to open a writers room to expand the scope of a potential sophomore season.

Details on season two — specifically episode length and a writing team — were not immediately available. Netflix declined to comment on those specifics.

Co-stars Jessica Hecht and Punam Patel will return as series regulars for season two.

The series is based on O'Connell's I'm Special: And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves and hails from Warner Horizon Scripted Television and the studio's digital-focused Stage 13 banner. Parsons and his That's Wonderful Productions partner (and husband) Todd Spiewak exec produce alongside the company's Eric Norsoph. Anna Dokoza also exec produces the series, which is produced by Campfire.
