Fox sets trip for ‘Hollidays’

Emmy-winning scribe/producer to pilot family sitcom

There’s no place like Fox for “The Hollidays”: The net has given a half-hour put-pilot commitment to scribe Cheryl Holliday.

“The Hollidays” follows the tribulations of an off-kilter family –including a mother “who looks like Jackie Kennedy and talks like Marge Schott” — in a small Midwestern town. The Studios USA comedy is loosely based on writer-creator Holliday’s family life.

Project will be shot as a single- and multiple-camera hybrid. Holliday, who’s repped by UTA, signed a multi-year, multimillion-dollar deal with Studios USA in April.

Holliday most recently served as co-executive producer on ABC’s “Norm.” The former standup comic also created the Fox sitcom “Costello” and was a co-exec producer on Fox’s toon laffer “King of the Hill,” for which she won an Emmy.

Meanwhile, Fox and Studios USA have also chipped in to seal a joint talent-holding deal with thesp John Francis Daley (“Freaks and Geeks”). Deal calls for Daley to star in a project Fox is developing with Studios USA and scribes Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah (“Just Shoot Me”).

The Sachs and Judah project, currently in the script stage, follows a group of band members. Besides his lead turn on “Freaks and Geeks,” Daley was also featured on last season’s ABC comedy “The Geena Davis Show” and guest-starred last year on Fox’s “Boston Public.”
