Fox orders script from ‘House’ producers

Penalty attached to drama from Garrett, Friend

Fox is lookinng to get back in business with the executive producers of long-running hit “House.”

The network has ordered a drama script with a penalty attached from Russel Friend and Garrett Lerner.

Untitled script is for an ensemble show set in a naval aircraft carrier with an upstairs/downstairs dynamic that separates young men and women in dangerous jobs from a female fighter pilot and her season-long quest to solve a murder that occurs on board.

The duo have been at an overall deal at 20th Century Fox TV since April having come over from Universal Television. Friend and Lerner are writing partners who were on “House” since 2005, graduating to exec producers in the fourth season. Their previous credits include “Martial Law,” “Smallville,” “Roswell” and “Boston Public.”
