Brightlight Pictures 和 Pier 21 Films in development 上 Fort Puleyne

From a media release:

加拿大领先的影视制作公司Brightlight Pictures今天宣布开发新的喜剧系列,名为 Fort Puleyne。多伦多的制作公司Pier 21 Films将与作家Evany Rosen(新伊甸园) and Bell Media.

Written 和 created by Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley, B Positive) 和 Humphrey Ker (Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet), Fort Puleyne follows the foppishly optimistic young officer, Major Fitzwilliam “Fitz” Gower, as he leaves behind the life he knows for Upper Canada to lead the most misfit militia that ever served in the British Army during the War of 1812. With the help of his men (or more often in spite of them), Fitz must find a way to survive in this backwater garrison, earn his stripes, 和 finally gain the respect of his superiors–who have all but forgotten they stationed him there in the first place.

Middleditch, who just finished a six-season run 上 Silicon Valley  is currently starring in Chuck Lorre’s B Positive,由WME和Kirsten Ames Management拒绝。汉弗莱·克(Humphrey Ker),他在《哈利·波特》第二季上演 Mythic Quest is repped by ICM Partners 和 Kirsten Ames Management.
