Freaks and Geeks
creator Paul Feig
has signed a deal with HBO to develop Nice Guys
, a comedy series about a trio of nerdy male co-workers looking for love. "Just as Freaks and Geeks
was a realistic version of the high school experience for many people, this will lay out what normal guys go through as young adults," Feig tells Variety
. "I'm talking about the guys who aren't superficial jerks and would actually make good husbands if women would just stop and notice." He's not bitter, though.
