Barry Sonnenfeld will direct Fox's comedy pilot, Hatchett from Sony Pictures TV and 25 C Productions.

The show centers on a bad-boy literary luminary who escapes his disgraced career teaching at Yale only to find himself among the ultra-PC ranks of teachers at an Ohio public high school, says The Hollywood Reporter.
