It's 'Dad's' day with Fox pickup

2 June 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Just in time for Father's Day, Fox Broadcasting Co. has given a 22-episode pickup for the 2007-08 season to the animated comedy American Dad. Fox gave the full-season pickup to the 20th Century Fox TV show more than a year in advance of the '07-'08 season because of the long lead time required for animation production. The half-hour series about a CIA agent and his family premiered in the summer and settled in well this past season behind Family Guy as a part of Fox's Sunday animation block. Dad hails from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane and Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman. Barker and Weitzman are executive producers and showrunners on the series; MacFarlane is an executive producer and provides the voices for many of the characters, including title character Stan Smith. »

Corddry waxes for 'Glen'

9 February 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Daily Show correspondent Rob Corddry has landed the title role in Fox's comedy pilot Becoming Glen, while Angie Harmon has been tapped to star in ABC's drama pilot Secrets of a Small Town. On the pilot pickup front, ABC and NBC have ordered two comedies each. Becoming Glen, from 20th Century Fox TV, Ricky Blitt and Seth MacFarlane, centers on a successful fortysomething man who looks back at 1994, when he was a 32-year-old slacker (Corddry) living with his parents and spending all his time lying on the couch watching TV. It's been a very successful pilot season for brothers Rob and Nathan Corddry, both members of the fake news team of Comedy Central's Daily Show. Last week, Nathan Corddry was cast in another high-profile pilot, Aaron Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme's drama for NBC, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. »
