Ryan Seacrest will serve as executive producer on Squad Goals, a multi-camera hybrid sitcom for 20-somethings currently in development at CBS, because the world has apparently run out of stories to tell.
The script, from writers Lindsey Rosin (who worked on the Cruel Intentions musical) and Aaron Karo, will follow a squad of college friends who decide it’s time to grow up. That makes sense.
“Squad Goals” (an inspirational term made famous by Taylor Swift, defining the ultimate group of friends) hails from CBS Television Studios and Ryan Seacrest Prods., which is under an overall deal at the studio, focusing on the company’s scripted division. For RSP, the sale comes after the company sold a drama script to CBS, titled “The Down Beat.” From writer Paul Downs Colaizzo, the Atlanta-set marching band project will also be exec produced by Ludacris.
We are fast approaching the singularity. Pop culture is folding in on itself exponentially and we are making content about content and in 20 years the only thing on TV will by a Loud GIF of Taylor Swift saying her own name.
