Fox has given a pilot order to single-camera comedyGhosted from Tom Gormican with The Office alum Craig Robinson and Parks and Recreation’s Adam Scott set to star and executive produce. Fox landed the project last summer in a very competitive situation with a production commitment.

Written by Gormican (That Awkward Moment), 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.

Gormican executive produces with Robinson, Scott and 3 Arts’ Mark Schulman and Oly Obst. 20th Century Fox TV is the studio, producing with 3 Arts Entertainment. Kevin Etten (Workaholics) is showrunner/executive producer.

The timing of Ghosted is good as the project, described as a comedic X-Files, is targeted for next season when the recently rebooted signature Fox sci-fi drama is expected to return for another installment.

Ghosted reunites Robinson and Scott, who starred together in another sci-fi-themed comedy, the 2015 feature Hot Tub Time Machine 2. Robinson has been recurring on Fox comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Scott next co-stars in the HBO limited series Big Little Lies.

Ghosted joins fellow Fox comedy pilots Linda From HR and Thin Ice.
