After four episodes made for the web, Comedy Central is ready to move forward on a pilot for "Delco Proper," the series about three lumberyard workers who embody the struggle — not really — to become mature adults in a small, nettlesome town they never left. 

The network released its 2017-2018 development slate on Monday, revealing that the digital series about life in Delaware County will be given a chance to expand on the early interest it drew.

Written by local Deer Prom comics Tommy Pope, John McKeever and Tim Butterly, "Delco Proper" began with one episode in 2015 and later dropped three more episodes, each six minutes long, in February 2016.

As Comedy Central notes, the series explores how and why "it's hard to change in a town that doesn't."

It helps that the show has been shot in Delaware County and relies on local actors to play into the homegrown tics of protagonists Izzy, John and Tommy.
