“Amy’s Brother” is about an unconventional family that is formed when a successful type-A man and his estranged sister, plus her two children, find themselves not only back in each other’s lives but also living under one roof.
The pilot was co-written by Jim Cashman and Mitch Silpa, who will both serve as co-executive producers on the 30-minute, single-cam comedy. Warner Bros. Television is the studio.
The project marks the first TV series created by Cashman and Silpa, who are actors and writers who have ties to McCarthy — both have had small roles in her movies “The Boss,” “Bridesmaids,” “Spy,” and “The Heat.”
For Fox, “Amy’s Brother” marks the latest comedy pilot pickup, following “Ghosted,” starring Craig Robinson and Adam Scott; “Linda From HR”; “Thin Ice” from “New Girl” creator Liz Meriwether; and two workplace comedies “Type A” and “LA —> Vegas.”
