Leary to produce new sitcom pilot for FOX
Denis Leary, who executive produces and stars in F/X's critically acclaimed Rescue Me, has a new comedy pilot in the works for FOX. The untitled pilot, which will be written by Don Reo (he co-created My Wife and Kids), focuses on a teenage thief who moves in with his grandfather. The twist? His grandfather is a thief too. No news about casting for the show was released.
Leary recently wrapped the third season of Rescue Me, but the show will return for a fourth season in spring 2007.
