From Twitter to TV: Sh*t My Dad Says Gets CBS Deal

smdsJoining a growing list of social media memes turned mainstream media deals is the hilarious Twitter serial Shit My Dad Says, that we recently featured as one of the ten funniest Twitter accounts around.

The author of the account, Justin Halpern, simply tweets the quips and funny off-the-cuffs from his live-in 73-year-old dad. The results are hysterical enough to have already landed him a book deal, and now with a CBS option deal the concept will be finding its way to the other small screen, the television.

The creators of Will & Grace, David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, are already on board to executive produce the show, planned as a family comedy. Halpern will co-write the script with Patrick Schumacker.

The show will join “Texts from Last Night” as the second internet meme to get picked up by a broadcast network this season, both intended as half-hour series.

Do you follow @ShitMyDadSays? Do you think it will translate well to the television medium? Let us know in the comments.
