Fox has ordered a comedy pilot from “Cougar Town” creator Bill Lawrence.
In addition, the CW has ordered drama pilot “First Cut” from “90210” co-executive producer Jennie Snyder Urman and CBS Television Studios.
Warner Bros. Television and Lawrence’s shingle, Doozer, is behind “Like Father,” a single-camera comedy series centering on a father-son relationship that is loosely based on Lawrence’s life. It centers on a dynamic, charismatic dad who is only 19 years older than his adult son.
Lawrence will executive produce with Jeff Ingold. They have two other comedy scripts being considered at ABC and CBS.
“Cut” is a dramatic series centering on a female medical student who is glad to leave her nerdy past behind for a fresh start in the adult professional world. But the newly minted doctor discovers that, sadly and comically, life at the hospital where she works is no different than high school.
Urman executive produces with Dan Jinks (“Pushing Daisies”). She has another script in consideration at CBS.
CW has already picked up four drama pilots: Greg Berlanti superhero hour “Arrow”; a “Beauty and the Beast” reboot; “Sex and the City” prequel “The Carrie Diaries, and Josh Schwartz thriller “Cult.”
