The pilot season is ramping up and networks are really trying to figure out their new game plan with comedy, especially after last season’s cancellation bloodbath.
Having them make it out of development, we think ABC is doing well to move forward with the semi-autobiographical sitcoms based on the lives of Fortune Feimster and Jermaine Fowler. Respectively, they’re called Family Fortune and Delores and Jermaine.
They’ll be two in a crowded field of several pilots that are now in contention at ABC. Both pilots are multi-camera projects and we can only hope that they steer clear of what happened to Mulaney.
