Showtime is set for two new comedy pilots for their upcoming schedule.

The first is the male BBC adaptation, Manchild, a raunchy male version of Sex and the City; The Hollywood Reporter notes Sex and the City's creator, Darren Star will be the EP on this version.

Star has his hands in the second show from Showtime, Californication from Sony Pictures Television; it revolves around four male friends who are rapidly approaching 50 and knee-deep in midlife crises.

Look for both shows to start production soon, for a 2007 airing.
