FOX to Renew 'Wanda,' 'Boston' as Upfront Approaches
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) - While FOX will be among the last to present its fall schedule to the advertising community this week, the network continues to make noise early, handing out renewals to "Wanda at Large" and "Boston Public" over the weekend. In addition, FOX has ordered three new comedies and two new dramas on top of its previous commitments.

Here's the latest developments:

-- FOX has ordered three new comedies for the fall in addition to "The Ortegas," which it picked up from NBC late last week: the Portia de Rossi/Jason Bateman-led "Arrested Development," Luis Guzman's self-titled comedy "Luis," and the Norm Macdonald starrer "A Minute With Stan Hooper." "Cracking Up," which had been a leading contender to make FOX's fall schedule, has been given a midseason order.

-- On the drama front, both Jerry Bruckheimer's "Skin" and the Eliza Dushku-led "True Calling" are expected to bow this fall with the family drama "Still Life" coming in at midseason. FOX had previously given orders to "The O.C." and "Wonder Falls" for a late summer start.

-- While specific time slots for virtually all of FOX's schedule remain a mystery, "Luis" is expected to kick off the network's Thursday lineup at 8:00/7:00c followed by another comedy and a new drama at 9:00/8:00c.

FOX announces its fall schedule on Thursday.
