Fox Developing ‘Remix’ Comedy From Sam Laybourne & Mnelik Belilgne

EXCLUSIVE: Fox is developing a comedy called Remix from Sam Laybourne (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist) and Mnelik Belilgne (Killing It).

The script from Fox Entertainment Studios follows a progressive, podcast-loving millennial who tries to modernize his father’s old school funk recording studio in an effort to save the family business and bond with his outdated, opinionated music producer dad. The only problem with this hopeful, optimistic vision is that Dad thinks it sounds like touchy-feely garbage.

Laybourne was most recently the executive producer of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist for NBC as well as Zoey’s Extraordinary Christmas for Roku.  Last season he shot and executive produced his pilot Hug Machine at CBS with Party Over Here producing and Akiva Schaffer directing. He is currently developing the pilot Country Eastern with Vir Das for Fox with Party Over Here producing.
