“Super Clyde” is Greg Garcia’s single-camera comedy. The TV project focuses on Clyde (Grint), a fast-food worker who decides to become a superhero. THR describes Clyde as described as a an “avid comic book reader” and a “borderline agoraphobic.” The site also describes the show’s set-up:
“When Clyde inherits a $100,000 a month inheritance from his long-dead eccentric Uncle Bill, he decides that the cash will be his secret super power and will use it only for good and reward the good-hearted.”
“Super Clyde” is Grint’s move into a regular TV series. The 24-year-old is best known for playing Ron Weasley in all eight of the “Harry Potter” movies. Grint appears in “The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman” and “CBGB,” both slated for 2013 release.
Garcia, the creator of “Raising Hope” and “My Name is Earl,” will write and executive produce the comedy for CBS Television Studios. It is one of two projects he is developing for CBS, the second being a pilot of an untitled, multi-camera comedy.
Mike Fresco, who has also worked with “Raising Hope” and “My Name Is Earl,” will direct the pilot.
