Fox Orders Pilots for Gail Mancuso Buddy Cop Comedy, Chris Case Interracial Family Sitcom

”The Enforcers“ follows two single mothers who dream of becoming police officers

Fox has ordered pilots for comedies “The Enforcers” and an untitled Chris Case sitcom.

“The Enforcers,” which hails from Executive Producer Gail Mancuso (“Modern Family”), follows two wildly different single mothers with dreams of being police officers. They find themselves partnered as inspectors in the Code Enforcement Department, where, instead of fighting crime, they’ve been relegated to handling petty code breaking, such as noise complaints, tree trimming and water misuse. 

The single-camera half-hour Warner Bros. Television comedy will be written executive produced by Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer. Mancuso (pictured above) will direct.

The untitled Case comedy comes from 20th Century Fox Television. Case is writer and executive producer of the single-cam 30-minute pilot. Chris Spencer, Evan Silverberg, Daniel Rappaport and Malcom D. Lee will also executive produce; Lee is set to direct.

That sitcom is an interracial family comedy that surrounds Jay “Havoc” Hammond, an African-American, ex-NFL lineman who recently moved in with his white wife and her two oddball sons.

In Fox’s words, Hammond will struggle to win the most challenging game of his life: fatherhood.
