A British sitcom will be developed for U.S. audiences as Fox has given an off-cycle pilot order for a U.S. version of the show, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.

The project based on the British series “Outnumbered,” from writers Barbara Wallace and Thomas R. Wolfe, will be produced by 20th TV, Chernin Entertainment and Hat Trick Productions, the British company that produced the U.K. show, the article says.

The comedy follows a set of parents who are outnumbered by their three kids, the story adds. The British show has a "Modern Family" type of feel, with a mocumentary tone and a semi-improvised approach, it says.
