EXCLUSIVE: Bill Lawrence has sold a second comedy project this season, landing a second straight pilot production commitment. Fox has nabbed the single-camera comedy, which Lawrence will write, direct and executive produce. Inspired by Lawrence’s real-life experiences, it centers on a father-son relationship. This marks the first pilot script Lawrence will write solo since Scrubs. Two weeks ago, he and Greg Malins received a pilot production commitment from CBS for a multi-camera workplace comedy they will co-write together. Both projects hail from Warner Bros TV, where Lawrence is under a rich, long-term deal that started in June. The Fox deal reunites ICM-repped Lawrence with the network’s entertainment president Kevin Reilly, who was in the same position at NBC for some of Scrubs‘ run on the network.
