Will Forte and Kaitlin Olson are joining Jeffrey Katzenberg’s short-form platform Quibi with the pair to star in a comedy series “Flipped” to be produced by Funny Or Die.
Forte and Olson will play a chronically underemployed couple who are self-proclaimed home renovation ‘experts’, more than confident they are television’s next great home design celebrity duo.
The series follows the clueless pair as their dreams of basic cable fame and glory are derailed when they get themselves kidnapped by members of a drug cartel (Andy Garcia, Eva Longoria, and Arturo Castro) and are forced to renovate their sprawling homes.
“Flipped” was created and written by Steve Mallory and Damon Jones with both executive producing with Ryan Case, Joe Farrell and Jim Ziegler. Ryan Case will direct. The series is one of dozens in the works slated to launch in April 2020.
