NBC is developing a one hour comedy based on the action-comedy Image Comics series “Hawaiian Dick“. Johnny Knoxville, who has been attached to the property since 2004, is attached to produce the potential TV show. A decade back, Knoxville was involved with a feature film adaptation, but it ultimately never came to fruition. The project has now been retooled as a light-hearted procedural series, with some supernatural elements.
There’s no word at this time as to whether or not Knoxville might also star, but given that he intended on doing so a decade back, I suspect that is still his goal here. Paul Lovett & David Elliot will also executive produce the series alongside Knoxville, as well as pen the pilot script. No timeline for its arrival has been given, but a targeted Fall 2016 slot seems likely, if it scores a greenlight.
