In Going Dutch, a decorated, hard-ass colonel is tasked with running the least important U.S. Army base in the world, located in the tulip-hugging, wine-chugging Netherlands.
Denis Leary previously starred in Fox’s The Moodys for two seasons and the 2004-11 FX dramedy Rescue Me. His deal with Fox, which runs through his recently launched production company Amoeba, tasks him with developing and producing comedy, drama and animation. He is repped by WME and Ziffren Brittenham.
His son Jack is a writer, producer and director who runs Amoeba alongside Denis. Under the Amoeba banner, Jack oversees development for various projects across the television, film and new media landscape.
Church-Cooper was the co-creator and showrunner of the 2017-20 IFC series Brockmire, starring Hank Azaria. He recently was the co-executive producer of Minx Season 2 on Starz, as well as a co-executive producer on Seasons 2 and 3 of Hulu’s Future Man. He is repped by UTA, Haven Entertainment and HJTH.
