• The executive producer of FOX’s new comedy, “Weird Loners,” suggests that the world is full of weird loners.
• “Weird Loners” star Michael Knighton sees this role very different than his last comedy.
• Meera Rohit Kumbhani makes her television debut in “Weird Loners.”
“Weird Loners” executive producer Michael J. Weithorn points out the title of the new FOX comedy is meant to be ironic.
That’s good. Had this been a 30-minute series about being alone, there wouldn’t have been much interaction between the characters played by Becki Newton, Zachary Knighton, Nate Torrence and Meera Rohit Kumbhani.
“We are all weird loners. Nobody really can exist in a relationship easily, effortlessly. A happy relationship is one in which you don’t fantasize about being single more than 49% of the time. We’re all fighting the struggle of how to deal with being in relationships, these people to an extreme degree,” Weithorn says.
The series throws four characters into each other’s lives, and they form a bond.
