Adam Pally is turning this funny Twitter account into a TV show
A good idea for a television show can appear anywhere. And this isn’t the first — nor last — time that a Twitter account has served up some inspiration. Actor Adam Pally is developing a new show based on a funny parody account called Los Feliz Daycare.
The account, which started up in January of 2013, successfully imitates a true 21st-century hipster daycare where things are just a tad bit sketchy.
In the bio alone, the “daycare” claims that they “do not accept immunized children.” The account gives updates on what’s happening at the daycare, and what the children — with names like “Secret,” “Bourdain,” and “Encino” — are up to. false
The account’s owner, Jason Shapiro, will work as a writer on the show. He’ll be getting some help from writer and producer Erik Richter, who has worked on American Dad! in the past.
Shapiro himself is no stranger to television. In the past, he served as an assistant on shows like Lost and Parks and Recreation. He said he got the idea for the account after overhearing some parents at work talking about their daycare experience.
"The most fun I have with the character is when it’s clear we don’t have rules," Shapiro said in an interview with Los Feliz Ledger. "It’s kind of new agey, touchy-feely. I’m a 29-year old dude with no kids, so I’m imagining what these schools are like and sometimes I hit it dead on."
We think Pally is the perfect fit for a show like this. Set to be animated, the show is currently set to be released on Hulu.
