"Cougar Town" producer Kevin Biegel will write and executive-produce a semi-autobiographical comedy about three brothers on a small Army base
"Cougar Town" executive producer Kevin Biegel and Michelle Morgan landed comedy pilots with Fox.
Biegel's effort, "Enlisted," which is based on his relationships with his siblings, follows three very different brothers as they work together in the Army in a small base in California. Biegel (pictured) is writing and executive-producing the single-camera project, which is being produced by 20th Century Fox Television. Mike Royce ("1600 Penn," "Men of a Certain Age") is working with Biegel on the pilot.
"2 Wrongs," meanwhile, will center on Nick and Jenny, two star-crossed lovers who must contend with Nick’s family's strong dislike of Jenny, which is not helped by the fact that Jenny left Nick at the altar seven years ago. The single-camera pilot, which comes from 20th Century Fox Television and Chernin Entertainment, is being written and executive-produced by Morgan, with Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Aaron Kaplan and Sean Perrone also executive-producing.
The network, which pulled its freshman comedy "Ben and Kate" from the schedule this week, has been busy stocking up on comedy projects in recent days. In addition to the six-episode series order given to the Seth MacFarlane-produced comedy "Dads," the network gave the go-ahead to four comedy pilots on Tuesday, including a project based on the book "I Suck at Girls" by "S#*! My Dad Says" co-creator Justin Halpern.
