FOX (US Television Network)

FOX has ordered two new pilots: The Resident and Controversy.

“The Resident’ follows an idealistic young doctor who begins his first day under the supervision of a tough, brilliant senior resident who pulls the curtain back on all of the good and evil in modern day medicine.

In “Controversy,” the Junior Counsel of a prestigious Illinois university must deal with an out-of-control scandal when a young co-ed accuses several star football players of sexual assault. From the football coaches and boosters who wield outsize influence, to a university administration under siege, the series explores the type of high-profile controversy all-too familiar on today’s college campuses, as well as the corrosive, dangerous nature of institutional power.

FOX has announced three more pilots to order:

“Behind Enemy Lines” is described as a “military soap thriller” wherein a group of U.S. soldiers find themselves trapped behind enemy lines. The “distinctly patriotic series” is a multi-perspective narrative that closely follows our soldiers on the ground, and the officers and service men and women on a nearby aircraft carrier, along with intelligence officers in D.C., as they attempt to bring our heroes home safely and under the radar.

“The Passage” begins as a character-driven government conspiracy thriller and morphs into a post-apocalyptic saga with vampires. The series spans over a century and focuses on a young girl named Amy who must save the human race.

The X-Men The project will focus on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.

Two more pilots:

Type A is based on Aaron James’ book Assholes: A Theory and is described as an office comedy about a group of consultants hand-picked to do the dirty work most professionals can’t handle like layoffs and downsizing — basically generally delivering horrible news. To everyone else, they’re the enemy, but to each other, they’re family.

L.A. to Vegas is an ensemble workplace comedy about a group of underdogs trying to find their place in the world that is set on the Friday night flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and the returning flight on Sunday and who all share the same goal: to come back a winner in the casino of life.

Amy’s Brother. From Melissa McCarthy and husband Ben Falcone. About an unconventional family that is formed when a successful type-A man and his estranged sister, plus her two children, find themselves not only back in each other’s lives but also living under one roof.

Marvel’s “The Gifted” ordered to series by FOX.

Here’s the preview:

Ghosted and LA to Vegas have been picked up by FOX.

Ghosted centers on a cynical skeptic (Robinson), and a genius “true believer” in the paranormal (Scott), who are recruited by The Bureau Underground to look into the rampant “unexplained” activity in Los Angeles – all while uncovering a larger mystery that could threaten the existence of the human race.

LA to Vegas is an ensemble workplace comedy about an airline crew and the eccentric passengers who, every weekend, take the roundtrip flight from Burbank to Las Vegas with one goal in mind: to come back a winner.

FOX has ordered medical drama The Resident.

The Resident centres on Devon Pravesh, an idealistic young doctor who begins his first day under the supervision of a tough, brilliant senior resident, Conrad Hawkins, who pulls the curtain back on all of the good and evil in modern day medicine. Lives may be saved or lost, but expectations will always be shattered.
