Creators of 24 developing comedy for ABC
Comparing it to the mix of comedy and drama MASH was known for, 24 creators Joel Surnow and Bob Cochran are developing a real-time comedy for ABC about two paramedics who are great at their jobs but always screw up when it comes to one another. The two men created the series with the help of writer Dave Hemingson, creator of the short-lived Kitchen Confidential. While the series is set in real-time like 24, it will not be a continuing story from week to week, Instead, each episode will be self-contained. I think that's probably a good idea, as good as 24 is, I think some people haven't watched it for the simple fact they wouldn't know what's going on. Though maybe a serialized comedy show would be fun, too. Eventually the entire show would just be inside jokes that only the people who have been watching since the beginning would understand.
