Fox Orders Couples Therapy Comedy ‘Famous’ From ‘Moesha’ Co-Creator

Half-hour show from Ralph Farquhar and Ty Hodges premieres June 12

Fox has ordered 10 episodes of the comedy series “Famous.”

From co-creators Ralph Farquhar (“Moesha”) and Ty Hodges (“A Girl Like Grace”), the series will debut on June 12. Farquhar will executive produce, and Hodges will serve as supervising producer. The series is produced by 20th Century Fox.

The mockumentary will be set at the couples therapy sessions of dating high school teachers Fred and Geneva, whose relationship is tested when Geneva skyrockets to stardom overnight. She lands a record deal after her first music video goes viral and logs millions of views.

Casting details have yet to be announced.
