Fox is not moving forward with family dramedy “Studio City,” at least for the fall 2015-16 season, multiple individuals with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

The show follows a young singer named Cat (newcomer Florence Pugh), whose family life has been a celebration of dysfunction. Her mother is an unstable alcoholic and her father (Eric McCormack) is a drug-dealing musician. Cat is a survivor, though, and somehow has managed to keep her sense of humor, her romanticism and her dreams alive despite it all.

Heather Graham, Riley Smith and “American Idol” alum Chris Daughtry were all part of the pilot cast.

Insiders tell TheWrap that the show won’t be on Fox’s fall schedule, but there may be additional discussions after the network’s upfront presentation next week.

The John Wells Productions one-hour drama is made in association with Warner Bros. Television and is executive produced and written by Krista Vernoff. It is also executive produced by Wells (“Shameless”) and Andrew Stearn.

The project is inspired by Vernoff’s real-life experience.
