Fox is heading into its fall season with a new comic-book series and a new comedy as well. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox has handed out series orders to the pilots Human Target and Sons of Tuscon.
Human Target is based off a DC Comics title and stars Mark Valley as a shadowy freelance operative who offers a unique service to his clients: he becomes a Human Target and assumes his clients identities to put them out of harms way. Jon Steinberg wrote the pilot, with Simon West directing and Jackie Earle Haley and Chi McBride co-starring. McG executive produced the pilot along with Steinberg and West.
Sons of Tuscon stars Tyler Labine as a grifter who is hired by three affluent younger brothers to pretend to be their father while their real father serves time in prison for a white-collar crime. Tommy Dewey and Greg Bratman wrote the pilot, which was directed by Todd Holland.
