Quooklyn, you've made it! Following a feature in THE New York Times, Ridgewood will be the subject of a new Fox television show, called Weird Loners. Set to hit the air later this month, the single-camera sitcom will focus on “four single 30-something underdogs who are unexpectedly thrust into one another’s lives and form an unlikely bond in a Queens townhouse.”
The characters include a romance-obsessed dental hygienist, a "whip-smart" ladies man, a "sweet, odd man-child," and a "drop-dead gorgeous, mysterious and ethereal heartbreaker." Will Rudy's be like their Central Perk?
The show isn't actually filming in Ridgewood, the neighborhood was recreated on a studio lot in Los Angeles—it's unclear if Jefftown was also recreated and will make a cameo.
The Queens Courier, the show comes from writer Michael J. Weithorn (The King of Queens) and director Jake Kasdan (New Girl), the show stars Becki Newton (Ugly Betty), Zachary Knighton (Happy Endings), Nate Torrence (Hello Ladies) and newcomer Meera Khumbhani.
