Oscar-winning film directors Joel Coen and Ethan Coen are making their first foray into TV with the comedy series HarveKarbo, which received a script commitment from Fox. The filmmakers will executive produce the series with Cedar Rapids screenwriter Phil Johnston, who is writing the pilot script.

The series follows a vile Los Angeles private detective, whose cases often involve the twisted activities of Hollywood's elite citizens. It will also center on the detective's degenerate friends living in El Segundo.

Joel Coen, Ethan Coen, and Phil Johnston will executive produce the pilot alongside Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo.

It is said that Brian Grazer is credited with getting Joel Coen and Ethan Coen interested in making a TV series.
