HOLLYWOOD — “Party of Five” creators Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman are throwing a new shindig at Fox.
The network has picked up a one-hour drama put pilot from the writing duo and Sony Pictures Television tentatively titled “No Place Like Home.”
Project follows the unlikely marriage of a 17-year-old and an 18-year-old who boast dramatically different backgrounds.
One comes from a rich family that now finds itself on the skids, while the other comes from a lower-class family whose father suddenly opens a successful business.
“It’s really about the connection between these two families and how they intersect, and it’s also about the notion of success in this country,” Keyser said.
The creators plan to set the show in Los Angeles and are considering making one of the families Latino.
Keyser said he and Lippman were looking to return to their roots in family-oriented drama after dabbling with other genres in recent years.
“We wanted to go back to a genre that has done well for us and for Fox,” Keyser said. “It’s nice to be back at Fox, where we had good luck.”
Keyser and Lippman are best known for “Party of Five,” the critically acclaimed drama that lasted six seasons on Fox and made stars out of Neve Campbell, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Scott Wolf and Matthew Fox.
They also created the short-lived spinoff “Time of Your Life,” as well as the drama “Significant Others.”
Keyser, who’s repped by ICM, and Lippman, who’s repped by Endeavor, are still based at Sony.
“It’s a pleasure to be in business with Chris and Amy, who are masterful at developing interesting characters and telling compelling stories,” said Sony Pictures Television’s programming/production prexy Russ Krasnoff. “This show has contemporary sensibilities and capitalizes on their talents in a fresh, new way.”
