According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Peter Segal also is attached to direct Starship Dave, a sci-fi comedy feature for the studio that has Eddie Murphy attached to star. Under the pact with 20th TV, Segal is expected to direct a comedy pilot this pilot season and develop and direct comedy projects next development cycle.

Segal already is looking at 20th TV's crop of comedy pilots that have been picked so far. Most of 20th TV's director overall deals are on the drama side, so the studio brass were looking for the right comedy helmer and believe they've found him in Segal.
