Party People marks the second comedy on Silverman's development slate: Earlier this week, he teamed up with Modern Family's Sofia Vergara to adapt the Spanish series Aquí no hay quien viva (I Hate This Place) for ABC.Silverman left NBC last year after two-plus years to form Electus, but he retains an executive producer credit on The Office and The Biggest Loser.
