Fox Buys Tennis Comedy From Producer Behind 'The Office' THR

Fox has bought a comedy about a pro tennis player from Greg Daniels, who developed the U.S. version of "The Office," according to The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed.

The untitled project will focus on a mid-level pro tennis player who returns to his college town to get his life back on track.

"The Office" is set to end after its current ninth season, and plans for a spinoff called "The Farm" were canceled earlier this season. Daniels has other projects set up this development season, including three comedies at NBC and a workplace vehicle at ABC, the story notes.
