FX aiming for lift from pilot ‘Nip/Tuck’

Pilot focuses on two doctors who have different takes on life

FX will tackle the world of plastic surgeons with the pilot “Nip/Tuck,” from scribe Ryan Murphy (“Popular”).

Project, from Shephard/Robin Prods., follows the lives of two Miami-based doctors who are best friends but have a decidedly different outlook on their job and their lives. Both are at a point of crisis in their lives: One is stuck in an increasingly loveless marriage, along with a cynical son, while the other — a brash, single man who frequently beds prospective patients — can’t understand his partner’s emotional angst.

Murphy, Greer Shephard and Michael Robin will exec produce “Nip/Tuck.”

Murphy created “Popular” (along with Gina Matthews), and also exec produced the WB pilot “St. Sass.”

On the bigscreen, the CAA-repped Murphy will write and direct “Running With Scissors,” an adaptation to the bestselling book by Augusten Burroughs. Murphy also wrote and will direct “Why Can’t I Be Audrey Hepburn” for Warner Bros.

Shephard/Robin, also repped by CAA, previously worked with Murphy on “Popular,” which the company produced for Warner Bros. Television. Company’s other credits include another WB series, “Brutally Normal,” and the ABC telepic “Bailey’s Mistake.”
