Fox Moves Forward With J.J. Abrams Comedy Deadline

Fox has given a comedy from J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot a put pilot commitment, reports Deadline.com. Called "Adulting," the comedy is based on a yet-to-be-released book by the same name, a nonfiction guide to becoming a grown-up that's based on a blog by Kelly Williams Brown, the story notes.

"The Vow" co-writers Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein are executive producing the project with Abrams and Bryan Burk. The tone of the project is said to be similar to Fox's comedy "New Girl," which could make it a contender as a companion for the show, the story notes.
