Everyday Insanity: Sterling K. Brown to produce drama series at FOX
Everyday Insanity, a new one-hour drama series from FOX, is currently in development with Golden Globe and Emmy winner Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us, American Crime Story, Waves) set to executive produce, Variety has confirmed.
Everyday Insanity is inspired by the life events of series creator Laura Bensick. It is described as an uplifting drama about three wildly different families who form a “created family” to support each other after their loved ones are diagnosed with mental illnesses.
Bensick will serve as the writer and an executive producer on the series, with Brown and Danielle Reardon executive producing under for their Indian Meadows Productions company, which was launched in 2018 with a goal of promoting diversity while developing and producing projects across film, broadcast, cable, and streaming.
Everyday Insanity was given a script commitment with a penalty attached by FOX. 20th Century Fox Television will co-produce with Fox Entertainment.
Indian Meadows is also currently developing a series for Hulu based on Esi Edugyan’s novel Washington Black. Besides currently starring on NBC’s award-winning drama This Is Us, Brown’s upcoming onscreen feature credits include Waves, The Rhythm Section, Frozen II, and the biographical sports movie Rise.
