How lucky can one guy get? First John Cochrane wins the million-dollar prize as victor of Survivor: Caramoan — Fans vs. Favorites, and now he’s just landed a gig as a writer on a new sitcom starring Arrested Development‘s Will Arnett.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cochrane issued a tweet reading, “I’m thrilled to announce that I’m going to be a writer on the new CBS sitcom ‘The Millers’ (with Will Arnett, Margo Martindale, and more)!” The Hollywood Reporter investigated, and confirmed that Cochrane had indeed joined the writing staff of the show, created by Raising Hope‘s Greg Garcia.
During the Survivor finale’s live reunion show, Cochrane revealed he was giving serious consideration to quitting his job as a lawyer to pursue his dream of writing for Hollywood. “[It's] an abstract aspiration at this point,” he said. “I’ve always been a good writer in school…maybe I’ll write some sort of screenplay, or comedy writing. Then I start thinking, am I really that funny, or am I just deluding myself?”
The Millers is set to debut this fall on CBS.
