Fox confirmed Monday it has picked up a pilot based on the “Frangela” comedy act, which features Los Angeles-based comedians Angela Shelton and Frances Callier.

“Frangela” is being produced by 20th Century Fox, Touchstone TV and Brillstein-Grey Entertainment and features David Zuckerman as a co-writer and executive producer along with Ms. Shelton and Ms. Callier.

The series will be based on Ms. Shelton and Ms. Callier’s act, where the pair often talk about their friendship, politics and black America. The pair met in Chicago and are good friends in real life.

Peter Traugott and Dan Pasternak will also serve as nonwriting executive producers.
