FX is getting back into business with Rescue Me co-creator/star Denis Leary. The cable network has handed a pilot order to comedy Bronx Warrants. Created by Dean Lorey (Arrested Development), it is based on the real life exploits of David Joglar and Richard Wetzel. Bronx Warrants is a comedy revolving around a group of errant warrant detectives in the Bronx assigned to arrest individuals with outstanding warrants. With bonuses paid out for each “body” they bring in, the detectives are out to get rich rather than dole out justice. Lorey, Leary and Jim Serpico serve as executive producers; Tom Sellitti is co-executive Producer, Joglar and Wetzel are co-producers. Bronx Warrants is produced by FX Prods. “Dean Lorey has taken this unique police squad and created a hilarious and surprising world of characters and situations,” said Eric Schrier, Head of Series Development for FX and EVP of FX Prods. Leary, Serpico and Sellitti and their Apostle Pictures produced FX’s long-running drama Rescue Me as well as the praised ABC comedy The Job. The company is behind another comedy, Sirens, which is finalizing a deal for a pilot order at USA Network. The paramedic show was created by Leary and Bob Fisher, with Fox TV Studios producing.
