Middle America Family Comedy from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Duo Receives Pilot Order at FOX

Fox is looking to program to middle America.

The network has handed out a late-season pilot order to an untitled multicamera comedy from the team behind FX's long-running hit It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

The untitled comedy revolves around a woman, her ex-husband and her new wife who all work together to raise a family in middle America. The comedy hails from 20th Century Fox Television.

Rob McElhenney and Rob Rosell will pen the script and exec produce the comedy alongside It's Always Sunny collaborators Nick Frenkel, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton. (While Day, Howerton and McElhenney star in Sunny — and Howerton toplines NBC comedy A.P. Bio — none are excepted to have on-screen roles in the untitled Fox comedy.) The comedy is in contention for a midseason — or beyond — order at Fox, which continues to develop off-cycle as broadcast networks look to year-round development.
