‘Jackass’ trio field Fox

Dickhouse to create half-hour project

The braintrust behind MTV’s “Jackass” have sealed a put pilot commitment to develop a new project at Fox Broadcasting.

Dickhouse Prods. — which consists of “Jackass” exec producers Johnny Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine and Spike Jonze — will create a half-hour project at the network under a two-for-one deal.

No studio is attached yet on the project, which could take form as a reality or scripted series. It’s unclear whether the trio would have any role on camera.

The trio have been busy in recent months, as they fast-tracked a feature version of “Jackass” for MTV Films and Paramount.

Knoxville stars in the pic, while “Jackass” co-creator Tremaine is directing. Pic is currently set for an August release.

Jonze helmed “Being John Malkovich” and the upcoming “Adaptation” and starred in “Three Kings.”

Knoxville appears in “Men in Black II” and also recently appeared in “Big Trouble” and “Deuces Wild.”

All three producers, along with Dickhouse, are repped by CAA.
