8/20/2012 12:25 PM Eastern

IFC is developing a comedy series based on comedian Chris Gethard's book, A Bad Idea I'm About to Do: True Tales of Seriously Poor Judgment and Stunningly Awkward Adventure.

Gethard's book compiles his own experiences navigating adolescence and young adulthood. The network has ordered a pilot script of the project.

"This program is IFC's way of spotlighting comedians we admire," said Jennifer Caserta, president and GM of IFC in a statement. "We're extremely grateful to Chris and his family for allowing us this special opportunity."

Gethard is also the first comedian to be apart of IFC's "Adopt-A-Comic" program to help spotlight certain comedians. Gethard will host on-air programming, create exclusive content for IFC.com, among other things.
