Two actors from NBC's Thursday comedy block, Scrubs star Zack Braff and The Office alum David Denman, are uniting for Saint of Circumstance, a drama pilot for Fox, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Braff is in negotiations to direct and executive produce and Denman is set to star in the pilot, which was written by Braff's brother, Adam.

The project, from ABC Studios, centers on Wayne (Denman), a man going through a midlife crisis who quits his dead-end office job to be a paramedic on the night shift.

There is no start date for the pilot, which is expected to film after the end of the writers strike, accommodating Braff's acting duties on Scrubs.

Braff has directed half a dozen episodes of Scrubs, whose seventh and final season has been interrupted by the strike.
