Surviving Jack: First Look at the New FOX Comedy

FOX has picked up several new shows for the 2013-14 season — including Surviving Jack, a comedy that stars Christopher Meloni and is based on a book by $#*! My Dad Says’ Justin Halpern.

Here’s their description and a photo from the pilot:

SURVIVING JACK (working title) is a new single-camera ensemble comedy based on best-selling author Justin Halpern’s semi-autobiographical book, “I Suck at Girls.” Set in 1990s Southern California, Emmy Award nominee Christopher Meloni stars as a man becoming a dad, as his son is becoming a man, in a time before “coming of age” was something you could Google

SURVIVING JACK (wt) is produced by Doozer Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Based on best-selling author Justin Halpern’s book, “I Suck at Girls,” the series is created by Halpern (“$#*! My Dad Says”) and Patrick Schumacker (“$#*! My Dad Says”) who wrote the pilot. The series is executive-produced by Halpern, Schumacker, Emmy Award nominee Bill Lawrence (“Spin City,” “Scrubs,” “Clone High,” “Cougar Town”) and Jeff Ingold. Victor Nelli (“Scrubs,” “The Bernie Mac Show”) directed the pilot.

Other new FOX shows are Almost Human, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Dads, Enlisted, Gang Related, Rake, Sleepy Hollow, and Us & Them.

What do you think? Based on this limited information, will you give Surviving Jack a chance?

LOVE THIS SHOW! It has to be the best comedy on TV, and with Christopher Meloni on every woman in the country will watch. I have yet to meet one who doesn’t think this man is the hottest real man to hit the airwaves in decades. Why do you think we all watch SVU over and ovr and over and over? It’s not the story lines, it’s Elliot Stabler. Fox would be absolutely foolish to cancel this show. Of course maybe some other network with intelligent management will pick it up. It’s happened before…
