FOX GIVES SERIES ORDER TO NEW ENSEMBLE COMEDY "MULANEY" (working title), FROM COMEDIAN JOHN MULANEY AND LORNE MICHAELS

Emmy Award Winner Martin Short and Mulaney to Co-Star in Multi-Cam Comedy Based on Mulaney's Life

Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) has given a series order to MULANEY (working title), a young ensemble comedy created, written by and starring John Mulaney ("Saturday Night Live"). The new multi-cam comedy will be produced by Universal Television and executive-produced by Lorne Michaels ("Saturday Night Live") and Mulaney, and the pilot episode will be directed by Andy Ackerman ("The New Adventures of Old Christine," "Seinfeld"). Emmy Award-winning actor and comedian Martin Short ("Primetime Glick," "Saturday Night Live," "SCTV") will co-star.

"John is one of the sharpest and most skilled next-generation comedic voices out there, who also happens to be surrounded by the best of the best on this new show," said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment for FOX. "I am personally thrilled to be working with Lorne Michaels again, a friend and show business hero who knows better than anyone how to build a show around talent. Add in the comedy magic of Marty Short and the seasoned hand of Andy Ackerman, and I believe we have the makings of something really special here."

Set in New York, and based on the life and stand-up comedy of Mulaney, the new comedy follows an aspiring comedian (Mulaney) coming of age under the influence of his boss (Short), his roommates and his neighbors.

A wizened comedy veteran at 30 years of age, John Mulaney began his career in New York's East Village as part of the two-man "Oh Hello Show," with comedian Nick Kroll. He has since performed in Ireland, Australia and Grand Island, NE. He was named one of Variety's 10 Comics to Watch in 2008 - the same year he began working at "Saturday Night Live," on which he appeared as a "Weekend Update" correspondent and co-created such characters as "Stefon" with Bill Hader. Mulaney has released two stand-up comedy specials: "The Top Part" (2009) and "New in Town" (2012).

MULANEY (wt) is produced by Universal Television, Broadway Video and 3 Arts Entertainment. The series is created and written by John Mulaney. Lorne Michaels, Mulaney, David Miner (BROOKLYN NINE-NINE, "30 Rock"), Dave Becky ("Louie," "Everybody Hates Chris"), Andrew Singer ("Portlandia") and Andy Ackerman will serve as executive producers. Ackerman will direct the pilot.
