Fox is developing the single-camera comedy project The Intruders from actor-writer Danny Comden, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The project centers on a wealthy country club father in Arizona who falls in love with a white-trash single mom and blindsides his kids by moving her and her family into their estate, where the debaucherous world of Lake Havasu collides with the manicured lawns of Scottsdale.
"I kept hearing the networks are looking for a family show, and I had a highly comical show staring directly in my face: the family I chose to marry into," Comden said.
The premise is based on Comden's wife's real-life experiences as a child in Arizona; her upper-middle-class dad brought in his white-trash girlfriend and her family to live with them.
Comden is penning the project, which has received a script commitment with penalty from Fox after interest from three networks.
Comden is not attached to star to the Fox project but is considering creating a character for himself to play.
