FX has picked up the new pilot comedy Bronx Warrants which is 'based on the real life exploits of David Joglar and Richard Wetzel. Bronx Warrants is a comedy revolving around a group of errant warrant detectives in the Bronx assigned to arrest individuals with outstanding warrants. With bonuses paid out for each “body” they bring in, the detectives are out to get rich rather than dole out justice.'
The comedy was created by Dean Lorey and Lorey, Leary and Jim Serpico serve as executive producers; Tom Sellitti is co-executive Producer, Joglar and Wetzel are co-producers. "Dean Lorey has taken this unique police squad and created a hilarious and surprising world of characters and situations," said Eric Schrier, Head of Series Development for FX and EVP of FX Prods.
Denis Leary and Bob Fisher have also finalized a deal for a pilot about paramedics at the USA Network called Sirens.
