For having two hours of weekly television wiped from its schedule, it’s surprising to see how few comedy pilots Fox picked up. I can see why they haven’t made up their minds on Grandfathered or The Grinder yet. Though that decision plays into Winning Ugly’s pickup chances.
High concept is obviously the name of the game at Fox. Big, splashy concepts and big stars. Not surprising from the network that owns an animation block and Last Man on Earth.
I’ll go with my gut and a little logic and say the greenlights are: Charity Case, Making History, Son of Zorn and Winning Ugly.
Stay tuned for our preview of Fox’s drama pilots on Thursday…
