Jotting down the musings of his 74-year-old father has taken Justin Halpern from obscure Twitter user to bestselling author.
And now the 29-year-old Halpern has landed a sitcom deal.
The show will air at 8:30 p.m. Eastern time Thursday nights this fall starting Sept. 23. See the video below for a preview.
Halpern's rise to fame started when he began Tweeting the harsh but funny comments of his father. It caught on, and he now has about 1.6 million followers on Twitter.
Halpern's book based on the Tweets has also consistently been atop various bestseller lists over the past few months. It remains to be seen whether the TV version fares just as well.
