"Scrubs" creator Bill Lawrence has landed a comedy pilot with Fox, an individual with knowledge of the deal confirms to The Wrap.
The half-hour, single-camera effort, titled "Like Father," is described as "centering on a father-son relationship, inspired by Lawrence's real-life experience." Lawrence will write, direct and executive-produce. The series comes via production company Doozier — whose Jeff Ingold will also executive-produce — in association with Warner Bros. Television.
