Captain America directorial duo working together on new Showtime comedy

The brothers behind box office powerhouse Captain America: Civil War, Joe and Anthony Russo, have announced they will return to TV on a new project being co-developed with Showtime.

The Russo bros will produce for TV for the first time since their hit sitcoms Community and Arrested Development, and will work with comedian Moshe Kasher, producer Mike Larocca and writer/actor Zach Cregger on a new half-hour comedy series.

Responding to the American pot epidemic, the series will revolve around a family of dealers who face adversity in the face of legalised marijuana in their home state. As the family learns the inns of legitimate business, they find support from their black-sheep son, whose law-abiding ways had traditionally made him the outlaw to the family of degenerates.

The Russos probably won’t intend on returning to TV full time however, with their features Avengers: Infinity War – Part I and II looming,  it might be some time before the bros will be sticking around.

However, the fact that Moshe Kasher (writer for Zoolander 2) and Zach Cregger (Guys With Kids) are collaborating with the bros, on what seems to be a very auspicious plotline, is suggestive enough that they’ll be worth waiting for.

Captain America: Civil War is in cinemas now.
