Farrellys Take Wacky Comedy To Tv

Wacky film-makers PETER and BOBBY FARRELLY are taking their brand of outrageous comedy to the small screen.

The siblings behind such box office hits as THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY and SHALLOW HAL are developing a project for FOX about an ugly telemarketer with a dismal love life, whose script becomes a popular TV series. But despite his newfound fame and fortune, he remains a Hollywood outsider and still can't attract women.

RICKY BLITT, who wrote the pilot script with Peter Farrelly, says, "It's almost like a JOE MILLIONAIRE kind of thing, but this new millionaire is just over 5 feet tall and gets rejected by every woman he meets. It's a cross between CSI: MIAMI and BENSON."

The Farrellys will direct the pilot, and will executive produce with Blitt, who calls the script "bizarrely autobiographical". Production is expected to begin later this year (03).
