FOX has given a greenlight for the pilot episode of the sitcom, The Nut from Sony Pictures Television.

The single-camera comedy is written by Ron Shelton and producers Russ Krasnoff and Gary Foster and centers on an ambitious, successful guy who juggles life, money and a loving but eccentric family in a daily effort to keep his head above water financially and cover his monthly bills, adds The Hollywood Reporter.

If The Nut is picked up, look for it as a mid-season replacement on FOX
