Endemol will distribute US cable channel TV Land’s latest sitcoms.
Endemol Worldwide Distribution has taken international rights to The Jim Gaffigan Show and Impastor.
The former, a 11x30mins single-cam comedy, is inspired by New York stand-up Gaffigan’s life, and includes Peter Tolan (Rescue Me) among its creators. Sony Pictures Television is coproducing with Entertainment Partners and Brillstein Entertainment.
It launches on TV Land in 2015, with episodes re-running on Viacom sister channel Comedy Central.
Impastor follows a “gambling, pot-smoking slacker on the run from a loan shark who steals a man’s identity and ends up posing as the new gay pastor in a small, tightknit town”.
It comes from Christopher Vane (Good Luck Charlie) and will launch on TV Land next year.
