'Hurt' him: Winer sells pilot to Fox

24 August 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

It's a threepeat for hot writer-director Jason Winer, who has landed his third pilot in as many seasons.

Fox has given the green light to "This Might Hurt", a partially improvised single-camera comedy from the mastermind behind last year's "Giants of Radio" for CBS and the 2005 pilot for Fox "The Adventures of Big Handsome Guy and His Little Friend."

20th Century Fox TV, where Winer is based with an overall deal, is producing. In addition to creating the show, Winer will executive produce and direct the pilot.

"Hurt", which has been fast-tracked by Fox to shoot in November, is set at a private medical practice run by three partners -- a fiftysomething pediatrician, a charming buddy-type who is all bedside manners but not up to speed on the latest medical advances; his son, an internist, who is serious and intellectual and doesn't get along well with his dad; and a female OB-GYN with a secret.

"It's a look behind the curtain at the people that we perceive as being healthier than us both physically and emotionally," Winer said. »
