'It's Always Sunny' writing partners sell Fox comedy pilot, 'Broke Friends'

As always, I am ten hours too late, but once I did check my email, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" scribe Sonny Lee revealed that he and his writing partner, Patrick Walsh (who made his acting debut in last Thursday's episode), have sold a comedy pilot to the Fox network.

Congratulations to both Sonny and Patrick for a well-deserved new project! Just another one to add onto what I'm sure what will be a long list of impressive comedic work. Cheers.

Taken from Variety:
The other project, "Broke Friends," came to Fox after a competitive bidding situation with NBC. Patrick Walsh and Sonny Lee ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") are writing, while [Luke] Greenfield will direct and exec produce.

"Broke Friends" centers on an innocent Midwestern kid who relocates to New York, where he moves in with two scam artists.

"It's an ensemble comedy about which road you take in life -- the long, hard-working grind to the top, or the hedonistic joyride at the bottom."
