Mo Marable directed he first three episodes.
“We love all the ambitious, challenging, thematically-rich series that populate the current peak-TV landscape,” said Goor and Del Tredici in a statement. “We also love jokes. So, we tried to make a show that could deliver both. We wanted Killing It to explore America’s quasi-religious obsession with entrepreneurship and wealth, and we also wanted it to be funny. Really, really funny. Plus, we wanted it to have big snakes.
“It’s a daunting creative balancing act, but lucky for us, we were writing for Craig Robinson, aka the most likable man in the world,” they continued. His hilarious, effortlessly charming performance grounds even the wildest comic moments in something deeply human and relatable.”
Production on the series is underway in New Orleans. The first season will have 10 episodes.
Robinson, Mark Schulman, Mo Marable also executive produce.
