Fox Ups Episode Order for John Mulaney Comedy

10 Scribes To Watch John Mulaney

Fox has ordered an additional 10 episodes of its multi-cam comedy starring comedian-writer John Mulaney, bringing the total episode order for the series to 16.

Based loosely on the stand-up’s own life, “Mulaney” follows an aspiring comedian coming of age under the influence of his boss (Martin Short), his roommates and his neighbors. The cast also includes Elliott Gould, Zack Pearlman, Nasim Pedrad and Seaton Smith.

Originally developed at NBC last year, the show is produced by Universal Television, Broadway Video and 3 Arts Entertainment. Mulaney, a former “Saturday Night Live” writer, is exec producing with Lorne Michaels, David Miner, Dave Becky and Andrew Singer. Andy Ackerman (“Whitney”) directed the pilot.

Fox’s other comedy orders so far this season are “Last Man on Earth,” starring fellow “SNL” alum Will Forte, and “Weird Loners,” starring “Ugly Betty’s” Becki Newton.
