I had been waiting to hear which free-to-air channel would pick up new comedy The Crazy Ones due to premiere in the USA shortly and in a surprise move, Fox8 have picked up the rights to air the comedy starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar. The comedy set inside an advertising agency sees Williams playing father to Gellar and is William’s return to series television since Mork and Mindy.
Oscar-winner Robin Williams returns to his television roots with his signature brand of humor in the inspired workplace comedy from 20th Century Fox TV, The Crazy Ones. As a renowned advertising genius whose unorthodox methods would get him fired – if he weren’t the boss – he heads a powerful agency with the biggest clients and brands in the world. The office is staffed with an eclectic group intent on keeping his antics in check, including his daughter Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar), who often questions her father’s sanity while trying to make a name for herself in the advertising world.
The Crazy Ones is set to premiere Sunday October 20th on Fox8
