Hilarious Twitter account Shit My Dad Says is becoming a s(h)itcom.
Yep, you read right.
F**k it, we'll do it live!
Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.
The 700,000 follower account created on August 3 by 28 year old Justin Halpern to share some of the classic lines his father spits out has been snapped up by CBS as a television show.
Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick are on board to executive produce and supervise the writing for the multicamera family comedy, which Halpern a Maxim.com editor will co-write.
This isn’t the only agreement Halpern has made, last month he partnered with Harper Collins to turn the account into a book.
The comedy’s title will change if it gets on the air.
Some of his fathers absolute classics:
“Why the fuck would I want to live to 100? I’m 73 and shit’s starting to get boring. By the way, there’s no money left when I go, just fyi”;
“The baby will talk when he talks, relax. It ain’t like he knows the cure for cancer and he just ain’t spitting it out.”
“Oh please. You practically invented lazy. People should have to call you and ask for the rights to lazy before they use it.”
“Son, no one gives a shit about all the things your cell phone does. You didn’t invent it, you just bought it. Anybody can do that.”
