Fox Picks Up Reverse Threes Company

From The Hollywood Reporter:

“Stayed tuned after ‘American Idol’ for the series premiere of ‘Chicks and Dicks.'”

OK, so Fox will use a different title. But the network has just picked up a premium script for a new comedy that once had this rather provocative name.

Now dubbed the “Untitled Liz Meriwether Project,” the script is described as a “reverse ‘Three’s Company'” from screenwriter Meriwether and produced by 20th Century Fox TV in association with Chernin Entertainment. Executive producers include Meriwether, Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope.

The show is an ensemble comedy about an optimistic Midwestern woman who moves into a New York City apartment with three rather juvenile guys.

The WME-repped Meriwether has a humorously consistent track record for PG-13 project names.

She previously sold a TV pilot called “Sluts,” developed a feature at Paramount called “Honey Pot” and wrote the Ivan Reitman-directed romantic comedy “Friends With Benefits” (original title: “Fuckbuddies”).

Sounds like it will be an awful show. Can’t wait to see how insulting they get when they stereotype a woman from the Midwest.
