Fox leak drops Tyrer hire

The announcement that Tom Tyrer is joining Fox Broadcasting Co. came to reporters from an unusual source: a faux Fox press release sent by what appears to be a disgruntled employee.

The fake press release was riddled with errors, but did contain one kernel of news other than Tyrer’s hire: Fox has declined to pick up its option for six more episodes of its struggling soap “Pacific Palisades.”
