Fox Wins Mike Schur Cop Pilot
On Friday, we told you that all the networks were fighting over a cop sitcom created by Parks & Rec top dawgs Mike Schur and Dan Goor. Well, Fox won! Fox is sure in the game of winning the type of comedies that previously would’ve went to NBC. Another interesting wrinkle is hours before making this deal with Fox, Mike Schur signed an overall deal with Universal. So, even though NBC might’ve lost out on the show, ultimately the company is still going to make money on it. Add in the fact that NBC is moving away from hipper comedies in favor of broad farces and sad comedies starring famous sitcom actors from the 90s, this might just be a win-win. The main takeaway is in two years, Fox will undoubtedly be home to all your favorite comedies.
