Fox Orders ‘Daddy Issues’ Comedy Pilot Produced by Liz Meriwether
New Girl’s Liz Meriwether has a new pilot in the works at Fox. According to Deadline, the network has given a pilot order to a comedy produced by Meriwether titled Daddy Issues with Erin Foster (Barely Famous) set to write and star. Based on Foster’s life, Daddy Issues centers on Foster as Andi, “who refuses to settle down, and her friendship with her playboy dad. Andi’s world is turned upside down when she discovers her dad’s fallen in love with her best friend.” (Foster is the daughter of music producer David Foster.) Fox also recently ordered comedy pilots from Lee Daniels, Vali Chandrasekaran, Lil Rel Howery, and Jerrod Carmichael, and in November the network ordered a pilot presentation of a weekly late night show hosted by Neal Brennan.
