That's right. The hijinks and hilarity of an IRS office. Or, as they say in the television biz, an "IRS laffer."
OK. I'm a bit dubious.
But that's what Ron Howard, who brought us the wonderfully skewed (and under-appreciated) Arrested Development, and Brent Forrester, writer-director of the U.S. version of The Office, have planned in the show for Fox.
The workplace comedy set in an Internal Revenue Service district office apparently is an idea that Howard has been toying with for years. Hmmm. Now I'm really curious about his personal tax experiences.
The still untitled project -- how about Happy Returns with Fonzie as an auditor? -- already has its star.
David Krumholz (left), most recently of CBS' Numb3rs -- sorry Eppes family fans; this makes it sound like that series is winding down -- has been cast as an IRS agent trying to find nobility in his work.
Uh, yeah. That's sounding funny.
But I'm a TV and tax geek, so I'll give it a shot. And Alyssa Rosenberg of FedBlog thinks it might just work.
