Comedian Vir Das is now set to write and executive produce a new show for Fox Studios. Titled Country Eastern, the series is a single cam comedy series which will also star Vir Das. The show is about a young rich man from India who goes to America to resume his life with his family. In an effort to rebuild his life in Memphis, Tennessee, he decides to pursue his passion and become a country music singer. The only issue is that he is a complete bullshit fool in this act. If he really wants to sing well, he has to gain some life experience in America.
