FOX Developing New Comedy About Native American Family, Created by Lucas Brown Eyes

Fox has picked up Reservations, a single-camera comedy based created by Lucas Brown Eyes.

Lucas Brown Eyes created and wrote the show, and it is based on his own life as a Native American.

The comedy follows a Native American family that trades their impoverished reservation for Los Angeles, a move inspired by the dreams of a 14-year-old boy to live in Hollywood. But adjusting to life in this new world of Teslas and $10 lattes proves to be weirder and more complicated than this loud, proud and tight-knit family was expecting.

David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith’s KatzSmith and Fox Television will produce.

Reservations is the first network sale for Brown Eyes, who is a writer for Freeform’s Young & Hungry.

Reservations is a rare opportunity to bring Native American creatives and perspectives to a major TV network.
