ABC has picked up three more comedy pilots -- "Slice O' Life", toplined by Janeane Garofalo, for midseason consideration; a Touchstone TV sitcom starring comedian Rodney Carrington; and a 20th Century Fox TV/Imagine TV project starring comedian Kevin Hart for the fall. "Slice O' Life", written and executive produced by Bill Diamond, stars Garofalo as a producer of light human-interest segments on a newsmagazine. The untitled Rodney Carrington project is written and executive produced by Don Reo and Damon Wayans, the duo behind ABC's comedy "My Wife and Kids". It is based on Carrington's real life as a stand-up comedian raising a family. The untitled Kevin Hart project, from writer Stephen Engel (NBC's "Inside Schwartz"), centers on a wealthy, pampered black guy from Malibu (Kevin Hart) who moves to Philadelphia to live with his blue-collar relatives after his father loses all his money. Imagine TV's Brian Grazer and David Nevins are executive producing. The Kevin Hart project is the third comedy pilot with a riches-to-rags theme this season, along with Fox's "Arrested Development" and ABC's untitled Jenny McCarthy sitcom.
