Fox has announced a handful of moves regarding some of its comedy series, as the company will be picking up a new half-hour series called Pivoting, and renewing Call Me Kat for a second season.
Pivoting stars Eliza Couple, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Maggie Q, and will be written and executive produced by Liz Astrof. The series will follow three women (Coupe, Goodwin, Q) after the death of their childhood best friend. Faced with the reality that life is short, in desperate attempts to find happiness, they make a series of impulsive, ill-advised, and self-indulgent decisions, strengthening their bond proving it’s never too late to screw up your life.
As for Call Me Kat, Fox announced that a second season of the show is officially on its way. However, showrunner Darlene Hunt will not be returning. Hunt, who was also the executive producer for Season 1, will be replaced with negotiations currently ongoing to determine who will come in.
“We are excited to renew Call Me Kat and have Mayim, Cheyenne, Swoosie, Leslie, Kyla, and Julian return for their second season. Together, they share a winning chemistry that we, and viewers, adore,” said Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment, Fox Entertainment. “On behalf of everyone here at Fox, congratulations to this incredible cast and our terrific partners at Warner Bros on delivering this season’s No. 1 new comedy.”
