Pop Network has greenlit a new scripted comedy series set in the world of competitive aerobics, the network said Thursday.
The series, Let’s Get Physical, focuses on a slacker who makes a reluctant comeback in the fitness industry after his dad – dubbed the “Godfather of Aerobics” – unexpectedly passes away and wills him a broken-down family gym.
The series, which stars Matt Jones (Breaking Bad), Chris Diamantopoulos (Silicon Valley) and AnnaLynne McCord (90210), will debut on Pop in 2018.
Let’s Get Physical is executive produced by Rosey TV’s Michael Rosenberg (Hell on Wheels), Connor Pritchard’s Inside Center Productions (Workaholics), Ben and Dan Newmark of Grandma’s House Entertainment and John Morayniss for eOne.
“Let’s Get Physical is a contemporary self-aware comedy inspired by the aerobics fad that set fitness crazes in motion across the nation,” said Justin Rosenblatt, Pop executive vice president of Original Programming. “The show features characters that are distinctive, full of heart and played by a dream ensemble cast with undeniable chemistry.”
