Fox Orders Office Comedy Pilot From 'The Grinder' Pair
Fox is reteaming with the pair behind The Grinder.
The network has ordered a put pilot from writer-producers Jarrad Paul and Andy Mogel. Currently untitled, the single-camera half-hour hails from 20th Century Fox Television. The workplace comedy centers on an office culture thrown into upheaval when the startlingly un-PC CEO is pitted against a newly hired ultra PC "sensitivity specialist."
Mogel and Paul most recently created The Grinder, Fox's short-lived legal comedy starring Rob Lowe and Fred Savage. Despite generally positive reviews, the series didn't perform well in the ratings and the network canceled the series in May.
Paul and Mogel are repped by UTA, Mosaic and P.J. Shapiro at Ziffren.
