Fox greenlights trio of pilots

Network signs off on 'Supreme,' nurse drama

It was Fox’s turn on Friday to hand out wings to a trio of pilots, greenlighting dramas from Gary Tieche, Barry Josephson and Denis Leary.

“Supreme Courtships” comes from Adelstein Prods. and scribe Tieche, while Josephson has paired with U.K. producers Eileen Gallagher and Ann McManus (“Bad Girls”) and writers Samantha Goodman and Andy Stern for a drama about nurses.

Both of those projects hail from 20th Century Fox TV.

As for Leary, his Apostle shingle is producing “Canterbury’s Law,” penned by Dave Erickson, through its deal with Sony Pictures TV.

“Supreme Courtships” revolves around the professional and personal world of six Supreme Court clerks. Tieche and Adelstein Prods. (“Prison Break”) principals Marty Adelstein and Michael Thorn will produce.

The nurses pilot, a comedy/drama set in a big-city hospital, will be exec produced by Josephson (“Bones”), as well as Gallagher and McManus (whose Shed Prods. shingle in Britain is behind the hit “Footballers Wives”). Goodman and Stern will co-exec produce.

“Canterbury’s Law” reps Leary and Apostle’s second pilot pickup in less than a week. (NBC recently ordered the pilot “Fort Pit” from Apostle and Sony.) Leary and Apostle topper Jim Serpico will exec produce the drama, which centers on a female attorney who makes waves while defending her innocent clients. Erickson also will co-exec produce the drama.
