My Name Is Earl Creator Greg Garcia to Film New Comedy Pilot for Fox

My Name Is Earl's Creator Sets Up a New Show at Fox

Greg Garcia's My Name Is Earl is done, but Garcia's already got a new comedy project going at Fox — and it sounds even more twisted than his last.

The show combines the spirit of Earl with the family situations Garcia wrote about on Yes, Dear, and the result is, well, unusual: The comedy centers around a 25-year-old who has a one-night stand with a woman who ends up on death row for murder — yeah — and then has to raise their infant child by himself, with only his quirky family around for support. The main character frequently clashes with his own parents, who themselves became parents as teenagers. Said Garcia: ""Their hearts are in the right place, but they have no idea what they're doing whatsoever."

Garcia originally imagined the story as a movie, but when he pitched it as a TV series, Fox decided to shoot the pilot. Nobody's been cast yet, but production could start in the Fall.

Fox executives have been looking for odd comedies with a strong point of view, and this show sounds like it could fit the bill. Do you think you'd give this concept a chance?
