Fox has handed a put pilot deal to The Grinder, a single-camera comedy from Andrew Mogel, Jarrad Paul and Nick Stoller. Mogel and Paul will write and executive produce the project from 20th Century Fox TV, which revolves around two brothers. Stoller is a nonwriting EP and might direct.
The project marks a Fox reunion for Mogel and Paul, who created the network’s short-lived 2001 toon Allen Gregory with Jonah Hill. Repped by UTA, Mosaic and Ziffren Brittenham, the pair most recently wrote and directed the feature D Train, starring James Marsden and Jack Black.
Stoller directed the summer pic Neighbors and wrote Sex Tape and the recent Muppets movies. He is repped by UTA and attorney Bryan Wolf.
