According to The Hollywood Reporter, Canadian comic Russell Peters is attached to a comedy project set up at Fox Broadcasting Co. through Warner Bros. TV. Scribe Tom Brady (Sports Night) has been tapped to pen the pilot, loosely based on Peters' life and social observations as a comedian of South Asian descent.

The project is being produced through the newly formed production banner of Tom Werner, former partner in Carsey-Werner Co., and Eric Gold and Jimmy Miller. Fox has given it a script commitment.
