EXCLUSIVE: Christopher Titus is back at Fox with a new comedy project loosely based on his life. Titus’ eponymous sitcom ran on Fox for three seasons before being abruptly cancelled in 2002. In the show, which Titus co-created with Jack Kenny and Brian Hargrove, he starred as a version of himself surrounded by his dimwitted stepbrother, his girlfriend, his goody-goody friend and his lewd, multiple-divorced father.
Titus’ new project picks up eight years later in the life of the comedian who has gone through a marriage and a divorce since the end of his Fox series. In the new show, which has received a script order by the network, Titus would star as a current version of himself, dealing with his great new girlfriend and her solid family as well as his crazy ex-wife.
Titus is writing the script with sitcom veteran Michael Glouberman. The two are executive producing with Warren Littlefield who was key in putting the project together. 20th TV is producing. Titus is with Gersh and The Collective; Littlefield and Glouberman are with CAA.
