Spider-Man: Homecoming co-writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are developing the one-hour sci-fi/drama series Proxy (tentatively titled) for Fox, with the network ordering a script for the project. Through their GoldDay banner, Daley will write and executive produce, with Goldstein executive producing, and also writing (should the project get a series order).

Proxy can best be described as virtual reality crossed with Fantasy Island: in a world eerily like our own, a new technology allows online users to live out vicarious (and voyeuristic) thrills through the real-life experiences of hedonistic young "proxies" on a remote island paradise.

Daley and Goldstein made their directorial debut on 2015's Vacation, with Ed Helms (The Hangover) continuing the franchise. The pair are set to direct the upcoming Warner Bros. comedy film Game Night with Jason Bateman (Ozark) and Rachel McAdams (True Detective), As screenwriters, they were responsible for the scripts for box office hits Horrible Bosses and Spider-Man: Homecoming. Daley has also had a very successful relationship with Fox as an actor, having previously appeared on the long-running series Bones as well as the award-winning high school drama Boston Public.
