Now that Futurama's on hiatus, FOX went ahead and ordered some new pilots, hoping to fill the large void it will leave when and if it leaves the air.

The Fox network has accepted three projects for fall consideration: “The Pitts,” a comedy from 20th Century Fox TV; an untitled comedy from Eric Gilliland and Studios USA; and the dramedy “Septuplets,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“The Pitts,” from Emmy-winning “Simpsons” veteran Mike Scully, follows the Pitt family, an average yet unlucky bunch who face weekly obstacles. Scully also penned the script with his wife, writer Julie Thacker. The live-action comedy has already received a pilot order.

Gilliland (ABC’s “Roseanne”) will write and executive produce his untitled pilot, which follows a liberal son’s return from the Peace Corps to a new conservative stepfather. Gilliland’s most recently executive produced the CBS sitcom “Welcome to New York.”

"Septuplets," from writer-director-producer Kip Koening ("How to Make the Cruelest Month" ), centers on teenage septuplets who live in a family-owned, Santa Monica hotel. No studio is yet attached to the project.
And as if that weren't enough, get a look at this:

FOX has purchased the rights to a British talent search series, called "Pop Idol," that was a big hit in the U.K. From the creators of "Pop Stars,' the new series will be an update on the '80s series " Star Search."

The American version of the show is tentatively titled " American Icon." FOX has agreed to pay approximately $1 million for 15 episodes, according to the New York Post.

While " Pop Stars" was a big hit in England, the American version of the series, produced by Stone Stanley Prods., only pulled modest ratings on The WB. The show's sequel, " Pop Stars 2" didn't fare any better.

" Icon" will feature budding stars performing and evaluated by judges. The show will also offer an interactive component with viewers calling in and choosing the show's final winner.
For the love of Pete!  Any child over the age of three could've picked better shows.  To quote Bender, "What did I do to deserve this?????????"   frown    mad
