Writer-producer-director Adam Rifkin, whose credits include the 1995 feature “The Chase” starring Charlie Sheen, has been enlisted to executive produce as well as write and direct three series pilots for Fox Broadcasting.

The uncast trio includes “Humongous Pictures,” a comedy Rifkin described Tuesday as ” ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show’ set in a Roger Corman studio”; “The Neurotic Guy,” a sitcom about a straitlaced man living with a man obsessed by bacteria and various conspiracies; and “Undercover Girls,” a drama centering on a group of women who operate like Charlie’s Angels by day and an all-girl rock band at night.

“It’s like a live-action ‘Josie & the Pussycats,’ ” Rifkin said.

“Undercover Girls” is being produced in partnership with the Kushner-Locke Co.

In the feature arena, Rifkin recently wrapped as writer-director on indie feature “Denial,” headlined by Jason Alexander. He also wrote the DreamWorks comedy “Mousehunt” starring Nathan Lane that’s due for a holiday release.
