The first argument for this series was developed when the writer studied at the American Film Institute, under the supervision of Marta Kauffman, creator of the “Friends” series and this is the comedy style used with this series. The visual language of Misfitness will be the single-camera comedy series. One of the great appeals of the show is that it portrays characters with whom we can root for and with whom we can identify.
The series written with American sitcoms as a model portrays the lives of these four characters evolving in the environment of a gym for misfits.
