Fox is Developing a 'Girls'-esque Comedy Series Based on Viral Video 'Upstairs'

"Upstairs," a single-camera comedy from Shawn Wines ( a self-described "writer, director and unenthusiastic comedian") and producer Aaron Kaplan ("Terra Nova," "GCB"), has been put into development at Fox. While web series being picked up for development is now not an uncommon thing, "Upstairs" is based on the viral video below, which has according to Deadline been viewed more than two million times.

The project, which is apparently being described as a male "New Girl," is about an average young man who lives with a trust-fund kid roommate across the hall from a beautiful woman, and will look at how he and his friends deal with life in New York. The short below looks closer to a cross between "Louie" and "Girls," with a couple getting a little too honest about how their relationship will go as they negotiate on the stairs of the guy's apartment after a date.

The 28-year-old Wines' Columbia film school graduate thesis short "High Maintenance" won a silver medal at the Student Academy Awards in 2011. He'll write and co-executive produce "Upstairs," with Kaplan executive producing.
