Fox Picks Up Two Comedy Pilots Deadline
Fox is moving forward with two more single-camera comedy pilots, Deadline.com reports. Coming from “Cougar Town” co-creator Kevin Biegel is “Enlisted,” while “Two Wrongs” comes from feature writer Michelle Morgan.
Both projects are from 20th TV, the piece notes.
“’Enlisted,’ which originally landed at Fox with penalty, is based on Biegel’s relationship with his siblings and follows three very different brothers working together in the Army at a small base in Florida,” the piece reports. “Biegel is writing/executive producing the project with Mike Royce (‘Men of a Certain Age,’ ‘1600 Penn’), stemming from a blind script deal 20th TV had with Biegel. Biegel co-created ‘Cougar Town’ with Bill Lawrence.”
The report adds: “’Two Wrongs,’ co-produced by Chernin Entertainment, is a relationship comedy about a couple whose friends and family don’t think they are right for each other. Morgan is writing the script and executive producing with Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope and Aaron Kaplan & Sean Perrone of Kaplan Perrone Entertainment.”
