Will Packer Announces New TV Projects
Could it be the black-ish effect?
Following ABC’s new series about a successful Black family, producer Will Packer has sold not one, but two television scripts to NBC!
The first, Like Father, Like Son, is a half-hour sitcom inspired by actual events in Packer’s life and focuses on a recently divorced man who finds out he has a teenage son from a one-night-stand in college.
The second, a half-hour comedy titled #PeopleAreTalking, plans to address topics concerning race and sex, according to Indiewire.
Packer is known for blockbuster hits such as No Good Deed, Think Like a Man and Think Like a Man Too and Ride Along.
His next film project, The Wedding Ringer, starring Kevin Hart and Josh Gad, is due in theaters January 16, 2015.
