Paul Attanasio is back in the house at Fox, which has just greenlit the drama pilot Courtroom K. Created and written by Attanasio, Courtroom K revolves around the judge, public defender and prosecutor in a Milwaukee courtroom.

Variety says the one-hour project will mix drama with a darkly comedic bent, much like House, which Attanasio exec produces for Fox.

Attanasio's credits include creating the critical darling Homicide: Life on the Street, as well as Gideon's Crossing.
