Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the guys who penned the The Hangover script, are going into TV. According to Deadline, the duo have sold Mixology to ABC, a comedy that "follows five guys and five girls trying to find love at a trendy Manhattan bar across the course of one night." No word on if, by the end of the season, they'll all figure out that a trendy Manhattan bar is not the right place to go to "find love," but we do know that ABC has given the series a put-pilot commitment - meaning there will be a monetary penalty if the pilot is not aired - so they're apparently pretty confident in the concept.
"We’ve been working in features for a while, and we couldn’t be more excited to now bring our trademark brand of lame dialogue, thin characters, and gimmicky concepts to television," Lucas told to Deadline of the pick-up. "Television is definitely in a Golden Era," Scott added, "but with a little hard work, we think we can get that down to silver or bronze." Oh, you jokesters.
