Mike Royce sets second Fox laffer

Multicam project from 20th TV revolves around an ambitious couple

Mike Royce has set up a second comedy project at Fox.

The “Men of a Certain Age” creator-exec producer and 20th Century Fox TV have landed a script-plus-penalty order for an untitled multicamera laffer about a two-income couple who are determined to “have it all” but wind up forced to make compromises to achieve that goal.

Royce is writing the script and will serve as exec producer.

Shortly after inking an overall deal with 20th in September, Royce took the reins of a pre-existing 20th comedy project for Fox about an ex-con who moves in with his younger brother. “Little Brother” has been in the works at the network for a while from 20th-based 21 Laps and Hat Trick Prods. With Royce on board, Fox gave the project a put pilot order.

Royce is repped by UTA, manager Cary Hoffman and attorney Jared Levine of Barnes Morris.
