Upfronts: Fox picks up 'The Inn'
And we're off!
Fox goes last on Upfronts week, but it was first out of the gate with an official new show pickup.
As part of its presentation to advertisers on Thursday, Fox will announce a new comedy being added to the lineup. "The Inn" is about a boutique New York City hotel where everything seems to be running smoothly in the lobby. But behind the scenes there's a struggle for power between the manager, who runs the hotel like a gentlemen's club, and the human resources manager, who is always trying to keep the inn from getting sued.
The cast includes Brando Eaton, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Niecy Nash, Jerry O'Connell, Jolene Purdy and Molly Stanton. The series is created by Abraham Higginbotham ("Back to You," "Will & Grace," "Arrested Development") and is produced by 20th Century Fox Television.
