It’s a high-five at Fox for Fives, a single-camera comedy from writer/executive producer Shawn Wines, executive producer Aaron Kaplan and Warner Bros. TV, which has received a script commitment. The project reunites all the auspices of last season’s comedy Upstairs, which marked aspiring filmmaker Wines’ first sale. Fox brass liked the writer’s effort, based on his viral comedy short, and were interested in developing with him again. Fives is about a group of people who are excruciatingly average (5 on a scale of 10), coming together to battle daily life in the most image-conscious city in the world: Los Angeles. Kaplan has a history of keeping creative teams intact, which has worked well for him. He worked with comedy writer Dana Klein and 20th TV during the 2011-12 development season on Daddy’s Girls, which went to pilot at NBC. The following season, the same group landed a series order at CBS for Friends With Better Lives.
