Two more pilots have been picked up by TBS, bringing the number of new 60-minute comedies on the network's roster to four.

According the Hollywood Reporter, the two new pilot orders were for 'In Security' and 'Franklin and Bash.' The first concerns two sisters who run a private-security business for the high-and-mighty while trying to manage insecure family matters of their own. 'Franklin and Bash' pivots off the friendship of two gutsy, make-their-own-rules lawyers who beat a top-tier law firm on a case and are then invited to join the white-shoe firm.

Heading up the 'In Security' executive producing team are Ric Swartzlander ('Gary Unmarried'; 'Hidden Hills') and Peter Segal (the feature 'Get Smart') together with Starz CEO Chris Albrecht. Segal has been tapped to direct the pilot.

The idea stemmed from an indie movie that was written by George Wing ('50 First Dates') and John Jeffcoat. This adaptation, however, will be written by Robert Borden, who previously worked on 'The Drew Carey Show' and the 'Late Show with David Letterman.'
