Fox Orders Female Buddy Cop and Interracial Family Comedy Pilots
Fox is adding two more comedies to its growing slate of pilots, ordering two half-hour single camera projects.
The Enforcers from Warner Bros. Television is described as a female buddy comedy about two wildly different single mothers with dreams of being police officers who find themselves partnered as inspectors in the Code Enforcement Department. Instead of fighting crime, they have been relegated to handling petty code breaking, like noise complaints, tree trimming and water misuse. The pilot is written and executive produced by Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer (who both worked on The New Adventures of Old Christine) and directed and executive produced by Modern Family Emmy winner Gail Mancuso.
Untitled Chris Case Comedy comes from 20th Century Fox Television and centers around an interracial family led by Jay “Havoc” Hammond, an African American ex-NFL lineman who recently moved in with his white wife and her two oddball sons. The pilot showcases his struggles to win the most challenging game of his life: fatherhood. Written and executive produced by Chris Case (Reba, Spin City), the comedy is also executive produced by Chris Spencer (Real Husbands of Hollywood), Evan Silverberg and Daniel Rappaport, with Malcolm D. Lee serving as director and executive producer.
