Fox Entertainment has announced that they will pick up two pilots from the U.K. titled Outnumbered and Spaced. According to Variety, Fox Entertainment president Kevin Reilly found success at NBC adapting the British sitcom The Office and is looking to do the same at his new network.
Outnumbered is from MRC in association with Hat Trick and centers around a family that struggles to raise three kids, who happen to be overly intelligent and rambunctious. The U.S. version of the sitcom will be written and executive produced by Larry Levin and directed by Bryan Gordon.
Spaced was originally created in the U.K. by the Shaun of the Dead team Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright and Jessica Stevenson. Adam Barr will executive produce the U.S. version, which revolves around a young man and woman who pose as a couple in order to rent a cheap apartment.
Fox has not announced when they plan to air Outnumbered and Spaced.
