Twentieth Century Fox TV had two new projects picked up by two networks.
Fox bought the sitcom, Work Wife from writers Brad Copeland and Barbie Feldman Adler; that revolves around two newspaper columnists, a man and woman, who work so closely together that they start interacting like spouses, affecting their home lives. Variety reports Copeland and Adler got the inspiration for the show from their own partnership working on Arrested Development and My Name is Earl; with late hours and weekends on Arrested Development, they spent more time together than they did with their spouses.
The second sitcom was bought by NBC - an untitled sitcom from Abraham Higginbotham, based on the relationship of a mother attempting to reconnect with her gay son.
Look for both shows to get a midseason shot this season.
