'The Life & Times Of Tim' Creator Sells 'Commuters' Comedy To FOX

Now that the overlooked animated series The Life & Times Of Tim has wrapped up its three-season run on HBO, creator Steve Dildarian has sold a new live-action comedy called The Commuters to FOX.

Written and executive produced by Dildarian, The Commuters is a single-camera office comedy about a diverse group of co-workers who are bonded together by their daily drive from New Jersey to New York. Other executive producers on the project include Shawn Levy, Marty Adelstein, and Becky Clements, whose husband developed and executive produced The Life & Times Of Tim with Dildarian.

The Commuters received a script order from FOX, where Life & Times originated as a pilot presentation in 2007 before the network passed on it.

Beginning his career in advertising, Dildarian won numerous awards including more than 35 Clios and six Cannes Lions for his work with brands such as Budweiser and Staples. In fact, he was the creative genius behind the back-to-school commercial for Staples called "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year," in which a father joyously tosses school supplies into a shopping cart as his dour-faced children look on. He has also developed several Super Bowl ad campaigns, such as the one with the Budweiser lizards scheming to get rid of the ubiquitous Budweiser frogs.

As a big fan of The Life & Times Of Tim, it saddens me that the third season was the final one, but I'm interested to see where The Commuters goes. Steve Dildarian has a fresh and unique comedy voice that deserves to be on television. What do you think?

It saddened me how the third season ended, but then again it's always good to end a show before it gets stale. Great work, look forward to seeing how The Commuters turns out
