A single-camera comedy project from series co-creator/star Rob McElhenny and executive producer Rob Rosell gets a pilot order.

Fox has scooped up another another comedy project.

The network has order to pilot Living Loaded, a half-hour single-camera project from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-creator/star Rob McElhenny and his executive producer Rob Rosell.

Loaded, which hails from FX Productions, is being adapted from Dan Dunn's book by the same name. The latter, published in February, is a biographical account of the author's debaucherous adventures with a heavy focus on drinking.

The Sunny pair is also behind FX's animated effort Unsupervised, which is set to debut Jan. 19. The series centers on two eternally optimistic best friends who are navigating the harsh landscape of adolescence and trying to do what's right despite having no parental guidance whatsoever.

The news comes on the same day that Fox picked up projects from Dana Fox, Kevin Williamson, Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim.

McElhenny is repped by WME; Roswell is repped by CAA.
