Ron HowardRichie Cunningham's having a great pilot season. Sorry. Got stuck in the '70s for a moment. Correction, Ron Howard continues to rake in the dough. Yeah, that's better.

This March, for the first time since 'Arrested Development' met its untimely demise, Howard's company, Imagine, will lend its touch to TV comedy.

As the Hollywood Reporter details, FOX has committed to a pilot order of Imagine's untitled IRS workplace comedy. The pilot, which was written by 'The Office''s Brent Forrester, is reportedly based on an idea that Howard's had bouncing around in his head (and presumably on paper) for a number of years.

This will mark Imagine's first foray into comedy. (The production company currently has three dramas on the air: '24', 'Friday Night Lights and' 'Lie to Me.') Howard will co-produce the single-camera project, which was originally scheduled to be multi-cam.Ron HowardRichie Cunningham's having a great pilot season. Sorry. Got stuck in the '70s for a moment.

Psst. Ron, here's a hint on how to make it super-great (if not super-tuned-in-for) find roles for Jason Bateman, Jessica Walter, Will Arnet and the rest of the 'Arrested Development' cast. Seriously.
