Fox near deal for new Ryan Murphy drama

Untitled procedural is also from '24's' Howard Gordon

Two producing powerhouses -- "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy and "24" executive producer Howard Gordon -- are teaming for new procedural TV drama.

The Emmy-winning duo are near a deal at Fox for a put pilot order on an as-yet-untitled project.

Though story details are scarce, the 20th Century Fox TV project is being called a high-concept character-driven supernatural procedural about a psychiatrist who deals with people facing their worst fears and phobias. Though each week will deal with a different case, the show will not necessarily be a crime drama.

Murphy and Gordon will write and executive produce the series together. A deal with Fox is not complete, yet given the auspices behind the project, sources say a pilot order is likely.
