Ron Howard, the man behind Arrested Development, is back for a new multicamera comedy series at Fox with a put pilot commitment.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the workplace comedy is situated in an Internal Revenue Service district office and will be written by Brent Forrester, writer-director on another workplace comedy, NBC's single-camera The Office.
"The one thing that unites all Americans is their suspicion and hatred for the IRS," Forrester said. "That makes the characters on the show underdogs, because outside the office everyone is suspicious of them."
The IRS agent at the center "is trying hard to believe that his job is good and noble and provides a very important, vital service," Forrester said.
