The actor’s Red Hour Television scored two more sales, for comedies “You’re Not Doing It Right” and “Between Two Kings.” ABC gave both a script commitment through ABC Studios. Red Hour has a deal there, and Stiller, Red Hour TV’s Debbie Liebling and Stuart Cornfeld will exec produce.

Michael Ian Black stars and writes in “You’re Not Doing It Right,” a single- camera project Black is executive producing with manager Ted Schachter. The show is based on a book by Black, and is a comedy about modern marriage and parenting, and the realization you do not recognize the life you are living.

“Between Two Kings,” written and exec produced by Jeff Kahn, centers on a divorced father with an 11- year- old boy when the two move in with his self- centered father and gets caught in the middle of their needs,

The two shows join three other comedy sales for Red Hour TV at ABC. “compliKATEd” is co- created by and starring Bonnie Hunt. “Please Knock” is written by Kevin Napier and is loosely based on Stiller’s life. Adam Resnick also wrote “The Notorious Mollie Flowers.”
