With the TV revival machine in overdrive, Hulu has ordered comedy “Reboot,” from creator and executive producer Steve Levitan (“Modern Family”) and 20th Television, to series. In the satire, Hulu reboots an early 2000’s family sitcom, forcing back together a dysfunctional cast that must deal with their unresolved issues. Judy Greer (“Kidding”) will star opposite previously announced Keegan-Michael Key and Johnny Knoxville, replacing Leslie Bibb. “Steve Levitan is a comedy genius and his idea for ‘Reboot’ is as hilarious as it is timely. We’re thrilled that our friends at Hulu love this sly, wildly funny look at the television comedy business as much as we do,” said Karey Burke, President of 20th Television. Levitan also had a comment: “After working thirty years in TV comedy, this is both my love letter to sitcoms and, if I’m being honest, much-needed therapy.”
