its always sunny in philadelphia

Apple has commissioned a new comedy from the creators and stars of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day will write, produce and star in the as-yet-untitled show, which centres on life in a video games development studio. Apple has commissioned a full series without needing a pilot beforehand.

French gaming studio Ubisoft is listed as executive producer, presumably to add real-life insight into what life is like in the games industry.

McElhenney and Day have been busy of late. As well as the new show, they're working on the 13th series of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which starts next month in the US. There's also a tie-in videogame to go with the new series.

It's Always Sunny is just one series shy of becoming the longest-running live-action sitcom in US TV history. We'll have to wait and see if the duo's new show proves as successful.

Apple is currently spending $1 billion on original content in a bid to take on streaming giant Netflix.
