A Black Lady Sketch Show'COCKY' ANIMATED COMEDY FROM 'THE KNICK' CREATORS IN WORKS AT FOX01/25/21 @ 3:59 pm EST
head writer Lauren Ashley Smith is set to write and exec produce the U.S. remake of British comedy Timewasters

The single-camera comedy comes from CBS Studios. ABC is developing the remake of ITV2’s time-traveling jazz comedy as part of its second-cycle development process.Timewasters
was created by Daniel Lawrence Taylor, who also starred in it, and ran for two seasons on ITV2 in the UK. It was nominated for a BAFTA in 2018 for Best Scripted Comedy alongside Michaela Coel’s Chewing Gum
and Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney’s Catastrophe
as well as the winner BBC mockumentary This Country
, which is being remade at Fox.

The series follows the foursome’s often-bumbling attempts to survive and thrive in the Harlem Renaissance as it explores what it means to be Black in 2021, what it means to be Black in 1926 and the unique experience of being Black in both time periods.

A Harry Potter
live-action TV series is in early development at HBO Max. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter
that executives at the WarnerMedia-backed streamer have engaged in multiple conversations with potential writers exploring various ideas that would bring the beloved property to television. Sources say broad ideas have been discussed as part of the early-stage exploratory meetings.
While it's news that executives at HBO Max and Warners are engaged in meetings to find a writer and pitch for a Harry Potter
TV series, no writers or talent are currently attached as the conversations are still in the extremely early stages and no deals have been made. "There are no Harry Potter
series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform," HBO Max and Warner Bros. reaffirmed in a statement to THR.
Expanding the world of Harry Potter
remains a top priority for HBO Max and Warner Bros., which along with creator J.K. Rowling, controls rights to the property. Harry Potter
is one of Warners' most valuable pieces of IP.
News that talks are under way for a Harry Potter
TV series should come as no surprise given the value of the franchise to Warner Bros. Rowling's seven-book series was adapted as eight feature films that grossed more than $7 billion worldwide. Warners also has the Fantastic Beasts
prequel series of films, with the third set to bow next year and two more likely to come afterward.
