The writer-producers from the hit animated series Bob’s Burgers are branching out on their own. Steven Davis and Kelvin Yu are working on a new office comedy set in Antarctica. Yep, you read that correctly.
According to Deadline, NBC just bought the series, which follows a young researcher named Nora who heads to the harsh environment with big plans and hopefully even bigger coats. Unbeknownst to her, she’ll have to rely on a completely new set of skills to survive working alongside the eccentric individuals who live and work in this lonely office space located at the end of the world. There’s no title yet, but I hope it won’t have the words “cold” or “harsh” in it, because that would just be too on the nose.
Davis and Yu might be new to the “starting your own show” business, but Bob’s Burgers acted as the perfect training ground. They both started out as staff writers before working their way up to supervising producers.
While it’s still pretty early in the process, I can’t help but be a little excited to see another female-led comedy possibly headed to network TV. Besides, I think their experience on such a beloved series should count for something.
