Fox is staging a comedy reboot.
The network, whose sole live-action comedy " 'Til Death" was recently renewed for another season, is aggressively developing filmed half-hours and plans to greenlight five comedy pilots in the next week, Fox Entertainment president Kevin Reilly said during the network's portion of the Television Critics Assn.'s winter press tour.
"We're doubling down our commitment to comedy, and we're rebuilding the live action brand sown," Reilly said.
Reilly said he plans five comedy pilots for fall and at least five dramas. Also in contention for fall will be a reshot version of the sci-fi comedy "Boldly Going Nowhere," originally developed for midseason, and Ron Moore's "Virtuality" pilot is being overhauled.
"It could air as-is and a certain segment of the audience would flip for it," Reilly said. "But it's a little dense."
Reilly also confirmed that this is the final season for "Prison Break". In addition to the remaining four episodes, there's a possibility of a couple more episodes being shot. »
