British Director Christopher Guest and Jim Piddock (who co-stars in both Best in Show and A Mighty Wind) are hard at work on a new television effort. It reportedly is an improvised genealogy comedy called Family Tree, and it follows the efforts of one man — in this case, Bridesmaids star Chris O’Dowd — as he attempts to track down his real family.
NBCUniversal International Television is shopping the project to various pay services like HBO, Showtime, and even Netflix.
