FOX to Keep Trio; Adds Two Newcomers
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- FOX has renewed its freshman comedies "The Loop" and "The War at Home" as well as given "The O.C." the thumbs-up for a fourth go-around, several network sources confirmed this afternoon.

"The Loop's" pick-up is understood to be for only 13 episodes while it's not clear if "Home" and "The O.C.'s" orders are for full seasons. The renewals of the Warner Bros. Television-based "O.C." and "Home" come in spite of the widely reported tension between FOX/20th Century Fox Television and the WB/Warner Bros. Television over "Reba's" future.

Meanwhile, the network is moving forward with its sitcom pilots "Happy Hour" and "The Winner," ordering 13 installments of the former and six of the latter.

"Happy Hour," an odd-couple buddy comedy about two thirtysomething roommates (John Sloan, Lex Medlin), comes from Warner Bros. Television and creators from Jackie Filgo and Jeff Filgo ("That '70s Show"). Beth Lacke ("How I Met Your Mother"), Brooke D'Orsay ("King's Ransom"), Jamie Denbo ("My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss") and Nat Faxon ("Joey") also star while Eric Gold, Jimmy Miller and Tom Werner are executive producing along with the Filgos. Andy Ackerman directed the pilot.

"The Winner," from 20th Century Fox Television, revolves around a successful fortysomething man who looks back at 1994, when he was a 32-year-old slacker (Rob Corddry) living with his parents and spending all his time lying on the couch watching TV. Ricky Blitt and Seth MacFarlane ("Family Guy") are behind the half-hour, which also stars Erinn Hayes ("Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of 'Mork & Mindy'"), Julie Hagerty ("She's the Man"), Keir Gilchrist ("Missing") and Lenny Clarke ("Rescue Me"). Terry Hughes helmed the pilot.
