Upcoming Sitcom Based on Recent Philosophy Book

Fox Broadcasting Company is in the process of developing a new comedy television series based on the book, Assholes: A Theory, by philosopher Aaron James (UC Irvine). The show will be called Type-Areports TV Line (via Splitsider).

The show will star Eva Longoria as “an ambitious, brutally honest consultant who is at war with her inner ‘nice girl,'” along with Andy Richter, Ken Marino, Kyle Bornheimer, and Steve Harris.

According to TV Line, the show “centers on a team of corporate consultants hand-picked to do the dirty work most professionals can’t handle (i.e. layoffs, downsizing, etc.).”

Maybe if the show succeeds, some network will do a “WEST WING for the Trump Era” based on Harry Frankfurt’s book ON BULLSHIT.
