*The cable network that carries Louis CK’s acclaimed comedy “Louie” is looking to do the same with fellow stand-up comedian DL Hughley.
The untitled project, in the works at FX, will be based on Hughley’s life experiences and revolves around him as an unapologetically honest family man and radio host, reports Deadline.com.
Hughley has been married for more than 25 years and has three children. He had a New York radio show a couple of years ago and recently signed on to host a nationally syndicated afternoon drive show.
Hughley, one of The Original Kings Of Comedy, will co-write the script for the FX project with Sivert Glarum and Michael Jamin (“Brickleberry”). The three will executive produce with 3 Arts’ Michael Rotenberg and Dave Becky for FX Prods.
Hughley previously co-created/toplined the sitcom “The Hughleys” that ran for four seasons on ABC and UPN.
