George Clooney and Smokehouse Pictures are set to produce a movie about Smothers Brothers Tom and Dick, in an adaptation of David Biancullis book, Dangerously Funny: The Uncensored Story of The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.

The film will follow the controversy surrounding the Smothers Brothers short-lived television variety show, which debuted in 1967 and was abruptly canceled by CBS in 1969.
