Christopher Titus Reunites with Fox for a New Sitcom

     May 28, 2010


Irreverent comedian Christopher Titus is reuniting with Fox to develop a new sitcom loosely based on his life.  You may recall that the funnyman co-created and starred in the dark sitcom Titus, which aired on Fox from 2000-2002.  It featured Titus as an auto mechanic with a sadistic louse of a father, played with venomous zeal by Stacey Keach.  According to Deadline, the new series sees Titus “dealing with his great new girlfriend and her solid family as well as his crazy ex-wife.”  Titus is co-writing the project with Michael Glouberman (Malcom in the Middle); Warren Littlefield (Keen Eddie) joins the pair as executive producer.

I only have vague memories of the series, but I do remember the blackest of black comedic fodder as well as a unique structure.  The show relied on a lot of flashbacks, and included black-and-white scenes of Titus breaking the fourth wall.  You can get a sense of the edge in a montage of clips from the show after the jump, which feature a pre-Lost Cynthia Watros.

    The show itself was “decent”, but the format was definitely unique — many shows have used narration as a story telling tool, but the way Titus broke the 4th wall had a spooky confessional vibe that stands out unlike any other show i can think of (there was a really dark cop show once that did something similar, but i don't remember the name)

    The subject matter was definitely much darker and edgier then any other sitcom i can remember — Titus pulled no punches what so ever in showing the emotional effects of alcoholism on a family (even if it was a “ha ha” sitcom family)

    I'll watch anything with Titus in it. I still remember being extremely disappointed when “Titus” was cancelled. I wish there was a way Keach could return. The relish with which he played Titus' father was unusual in this day of watered down sitcoms.

    I meet Chris Titus 3 times and he is a very nice guy. I loved the first sitcom can’t wait for the new one. There is no other comic that can tell a story like Chris Titus and make people laugh like he can. Best of lot in the new sitcom. “I will be watching”.

    Your Fan,
