According to Variety, Fox is going to develop a pitch from Jonah Hill (Superbad) that will be produced by Peter Chernin.

Fox will also put together a script based on Peter Bagge's graphic novel series The Bradleys.

Hill is going to provide the voiceover on his show. He will also write it with Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul (Yes Man).

The show will follow "a 7-year-old socialite who acts and talks like an adult." Things get really interesting when he has to go to public school.

The Bradleys script will be written by Peter Bagge and Matthew Lawton (Crank Yankers).

The Bradleys focuses on a dysfunctional suburban family. It was originally published in the early 1980s.

"I was obsessed with Peter Bagge's comics when I was a teen," Lawton states. "I ran away to Seattle at the age of 16, and was definitely this grumpy, disaffected punk kid."

Lawton and Bagge are planning to meet with Fox next week to work out the project's storyline. The writing process will start shortly after that.
