In what is said to be one the most lucrative commitments thus far in development season, “Friends” and “Go On” alum Scott Silveri and 20th Century Fox TV have inked a put pilot with penalty commitment for a single-camera comedy project for Fox.
The project, which is still untitled, follows a family that’s good at handling the challenges it faces — and excellent at creating new ones. Silveri will write and exec produce. “New Girl’s” Jake Kasdan will direct and Melvin Mar (“Fresh Off the Boat,” film’s “Bad Teacher”) will also exec produce.
All three are repped by WME.
Silveri was recently given a hefty three-year overall deal with 20th TV.
