Freeform has given a pilot order to the comedy “Girls Code” from writer Kim Rosenstock and director Paul Feig.

The workplace comedy, which was first put into development last year, is set in the tech world and centers on “the odd couple partnership between a brazen, self-centered CEO and a community-building social entrepreneur who must overcome their many issues with each other in order to co-run a groundbreaking, all-female tech incubator.”

Rosenstock is writer, creator and executive producer on the half-hour from Paramount Television and Anonymous Content. Feig and Jessie Henderson of Feigco Entertainment also executive produce alongside Joy Gorman Wettels and Steve Golin of Anonymous.

Rosenstock, a veteran of Fox’s “New Girl,” also serves as writer and executive producer on an untitled comedy with Amy Poehler that was given a put pilot commitment at NBC back in October.

“Girls Code” joins Freeform’s comedy slate which includes the Yara Shahidi-led “Black-ish” spinoff “Grown-ish” (which was recently picked up for a second season, the buddy comedy “Alone Together” and the long-running multi-cam “Young & Hungry.”
