Showtime Greenlights Comedy ‘Flatbush Misdemeanors’

Showtime has given a straight-to-series order for 10 episodes of the new half-hour comedy “Flatbush Misdemeanors,” created and written by stand-up comedians Kevin Iso and Dan Perlman, who will both star. The logline: “Flatbush Misdemeanors” is a raw comedy of city life following Dan and Kevin, who play characters struggling to thrive in their new surroundings in the brash environment of Flatbush, Brooklyn. The show explores two longtime friends seeking to climb out of their heads and connect with others.  

Perlman is a stand-up comedian from New York, whose work includes the animated series “That’s My Vus!” and “the Iliza Shlesinger Sketch Show.” Iso was named a New Face at the 2019 Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal and recently appeared on Hulu’s “High Fidelity” series opposite Zoe Kravitz.
The series is a co-production by Showtime and Avalon (“Breeders,” “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”), which will act as lead studio in adapting Iso and Perlman’s digital series of the same name.
