Fox gets ‘Connected’

Net gives put pilot order for family laffer

Fox has given a put pilot order to “Connected,” a single-camera family comedy from “American Dad” scribe Nahnatchka Khan and documentarian RJ Cutler.

Project, which landed at Fox after a bidding war with other nets (including ABC), centers on two families that find themselves linked by a romantic relationship between their teenage children.

20th Century Fox TV is behind the show. Khan is writing the project and exec producing, while Cutler will also EP. Ann Blanchard is an exec producer as well.

Unusual partnership between Khan and Cutler came together after both sides met and found an opportunity to mesh their skill sets.

Khan was looking to get back into the live-action comedy biz, while Cutler continues to look to get into the scripted game, but will utilize his documentary background to add a real-life feel to the show.

It’s a reunion between Fox and Cutler, who created the critically acclaimed unscripted series “American High” for the network.

Cutler, who was behind the recent feature “The September Issue,” has had a busy TV producing career as of late on the unscripted side, producing shows such as “30 Days,” “Flip That House” and “American Candidate.”

Besides “American Dad,” Khan’s credits include “Unfabulous” and “Malcolm in the Middle.”
