Fox has greenlighted two more single-camera comedy pilots, The Enforcers, from I Hate My Teenage Daughter creators Sherry Bilsing-Graham & Ellen Kreamer and Warner Bros. TV; and an untitled half-hour from Sin City Saints co-creator Chris Case and 20th Century Fox TV.
Written by Bilsing-Graham & Kreamer and to be directed by Gail Mancuso, Emmy winner for Modern Family, The Enforcers is a female buddy comedy about two wildly different single mothers with dreams of being police officers who find themselves partnered as inspectors in the Code Enforcement Department. Instead of fighting crime, they have been relegated to handling petty code breaking, like noise complaints, tree trimming and water misuse. Bilsing-Graham, Kreamer and Mancuso executive produce .
This marks Bilsing-Graham & Kreamer’s third pilot at Fox, following I Hate My Teenage Daughter, which went to series, and The Assistants.
Written by Case and to be directed by Malcolm D. Lee, the untitled inter-racial family comedy (fka My White Wife And Kids) follows Jay “Havoc” Hammond, an African American, ex-NFL lineman who recently moved in with his white wife and her two oddball sons, as he struggles to win the most challenging game of his life: fatherhood. The project is based on Case’s experience as a teenager growing up with a black stepdad, an ex-football player, who married his white mom.
Case executive produces with Evan Silverberg and Daniel Rappaport of Entertainment 360 as well as Chris Spencer (Real Husbands of Hollywood).
In addition to co-creating and executive producing the basketball-themed Sin City Saints for Yahoo, Case served as an executive producer on FX’s Legit.
