Silicon Valley star Chris Diamantopoulos has co-created and is set to star in a new family comedy series filming in Canada

Diamantopoulos has teamed up with Aircraft Pictures and Untitled Entertainment, which also reps him, for half-hour series Mapletown

Mapletown is set on a small Canadian island and follows the brilliant teenage mayor who, after being elected to run her hometown of Mapletown, asks her opponent, the smart middle-aged Detwile (Diamantopoulous) to be her Chief of Staff.

The show is described as Malcolm in the Middle meets Northern Exposure and seeks to capture the tension between old-school islanders and brand-new transplants who come to need one another against all odds.

Diamantopoulos co-created the series with Adam Barken and Peter Lockyer. Aircraft Pictures produces with Untitled Entertainment.

Aircraft Pictures co-founders said in a statement: "Mapletown promises to be a lot of laughs with its quirky and diverse characters. We are excited to be working with Untitled Entertainment, along with Chris, Adam and Peter in creating this fun show for all audiences.

“This is a timely and relatable comedy brimming with heart. It has been a joy collaborating with this dynamic team anchored by Untitled’s multi-faceted client Chris Diamantopoulos."

Untitled Productions Michael Rosenberg and Laura Notarianni added: "And we look forward to finding the right American partner to help bring this show to life."
