Fox has picked up two sitcom pilots to series: “LA to Vegas,” which hails from Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, and the Craig Robinson/Adam Scott-starring “Ghosted.”
“L.A. to Vegas” is an ensemble workplace comedy about an airline crew and the eccentric passengers who, every weekend, take the roundtrip flight from Burbank to Las Vegas with one goal in mind — to come back a winner. The new series stars Dylan McDermott, Kim Matula, Ed Weeks, Nathan Lee Graham, Olivia Macklin and Peter Stormare.
In addition to Ferrell and McKay, Chris Henchy and Owen Burke are also set to executive produce the single-camera comedy. From Gary Sanchez Productions in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television, Lon Zimmet is writer and Steve Levitan will direct. The two of them also earn EP credits.
“Ghosted” is also a single-camera comedy. That one comes from 3Arts/Gettin’ Rad Productions in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television. It follows a cynical skeptic (Robinson), and a genius “true believer” in the paranormal (Scott), are recruited by a secret government agency to look into the rampant “unexplained” activity in Los Angeles — all while uncovering a larger mystery that could threaten the existence of the human race.
The 2016-2017 show also stars Ally Walker and Adeel Akhtar.
Tom Gormican will write and executive produce “Ghosted,” while Kevin Etten serves as showrunner. Jonathan Krisel will direct and executive produce the show; Robinson, Scott, Naomi Scott, Oly Obst and Mark Schulman will also get EP credits.
