Appearing on the Nerdist podcast to promote “Sausage Party,” actor Seth Rogen revealed that he and Evan Goldberg are re-teaming to write and produce a new half-hour comedy television series for FX. Asked if the project had been announced, Rogen wasn’t sure:
“We have a pilot for FX that we’re gonna shoot that we’re working on right now. We’re working on the script right now and we’re going to film that in the next year basically… I don’t know if it is, I think it is? I don’t know if it is… It’s about Singularity. It’s about artificial intelligence, it’s a half-hour comedy about the singularity basically. And I won’t say anything else because I honestly don’t know if it’s [been announced].”
The technological singularity is a hypothesis that ‘the invention of artificial superintelligence will abruptly trigger runaway technological growth, resulting in unfathomable changes to human civilization. No word on if Rogen will be involved as an actor as well.
