FOX Lands Blog-Inspired Comedy 'Adulting'

Marking the third sale of the season for ├╝berproducer JJ Abrams and his Bad Robot production company, FOX has acquired a single-camera comedy called Adulting with a put pilot commitment.

Kelly Williams Brown
Spawned from a blog of the same name, Adulting is based on an upcoming book by journalist Kelly Williams Brown entitled Adulting: How To Become A Grown-Up In 387 Easy(ish) Steps. Described as a quirky and humorous guide on how to become an adult, Brown's blog features her advice on a wide range of issues, including how to take care of your basic human needs, how to discuss politics with friends, how not to look like a slut at work, how to deal with dangerous toasters, and how to shut down office creepers, among a myriad of other topics.

Judging from the content and tone of the blog, Adulting could be a potential companion for FOX's flagship comedy New Girl. The project comes from the writing duo of Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, who worked together on feature films The Vow, Valentine's Day, and He's Just Not That Into You.

So far this season, Bad Robot has sold two dramas. FOX purchased a futuristic buddy-cop project involving androids, while a high-concept collaboration with Mexican director Alfonso Cuar├│n landed at NBC.

From what I've seen on YouTube, most of Brown's tips are basic common sense. Can her "387 Easy(ish) Steps" result in a successful television venture?
