Milo Ventimiglia, one of the stars of the breakout new NBC/20th TV drama This Is Us, has teamed with Royal Pains co-creator Andrew Lenchewski for Kin, a 20th TV-produced drama project which has been set up at Fox with script commitment plus penalty. This marks the first professional collaboration for Ventimiglia and Lenchewski who have been friends for two decades, dating back to their time as students at UCLA. Kin hails from DiVide Pictures, Ventimiglia’s production company with another long-time friend, Russ Cundiff.
Lenchewski served as executive producer/co-showrunner on USA’s Royal Pains, which recently wrapped its eight-season run. He has another pilot at the network, The Tap, which he co-wrote and executive produces. Lenchewski is repped by CAA and Jackway Tyerman.
O’Hare is repped by Verve and Underground.
