Fox'Veronica Mars' and 'Party Down' creator Rob Thomas could be back on TV with his new pilot order from Fox for a single-camera comedy called 'Little in Common.' Suddenly, everything feels right in the world.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the show follows three families who are united thanks to little league sports. Thomas also sold 'Temp,' a workplace comedy, to NBC.

Now the question we're all thinking: Which 'Veronica Mars' and 'Party Down' stars will get cast in these pilots?

Also at Fox, the network has ordered 'Touch' from Tim Kring, creator of 'Heroes.' The drama pilot follows a father and his autistic and mute son. The son can predict events before they happen.
