Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger) is venturing into producing with a TV comedy project at NBC. Written by comedy veteran David Israel (About A Boy), the untitled comedy centers on a guy whose world is rocked when he finds out his parents have been secretly “seeing” his ex-girlfriend for three years since he broke up with her, and the highly unlikely friendship he forms with his ex’s fiancée.
The plot is inspired by the true stories of Hammer, his wife, Elizabeth Chambers, and film producer Gordon Gray (Invincible). Gordon’s parents hid from him their incredibly close relationship with his ex-girlfriend Elizabeth, and Armie had no idea the sweet older couple his fiancée Elizabeth had become super close with were actually the parents of her ex-boyfriend Gordon.
Hammer, Israel and Gray through his Mayhem Pictures executive produce for Universal TV.
Hammer, whose great-grandfather is tycoon and philanthropist Armand Hammer, started off in television with roles on Reaper and Gossip Girl before segueing to features. He will next be seen in Guy Ritchie’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Hammer is with WME and Harris Hartman; Israel is with WME and Tom Collier; Gray with WME.
Big congrats to Armie and Elizabeth!
