Executive Producer Dean Lorey, Denis Leary and Jim Serpico are back in business with FX,as the network ordered the comedy pilot Bronx Warrants.
Bronx Warrants was created by Dean Lorey (Arrested Development, My Wife and Kids) who also serves as Executive Producer.
Bronx Warrants is based on the real life exploits of David Joglar and Richard Wetzel who are Co-Producers. Bronx Warrants is produced by FX Productions.
Bronx Warrants is a comedy revolving around a group of errant warrant detectives in the Bronx assigned to arrest individuals with outstanding warrants. With bonuses paid out for each “body” they bring in, the detectives are out to get rich rather than dole out justice.
"I'm thrilled to be working with Denis Leary, Jim Serpico and the great team at FX,” said Dean Lorey. “We loved this show from the second real life Bronx Warrants cops David Joglar and Richard Wetzel shared their insane exploits with us and we can't wait to get shooting."
Denis Leary added, “I speak for everyone at Apostle when I say it's great to be welcomed back into the FX family where we hope to make a laugh-out-loud half hour and - even more importantly - use the network's juice to sneak into the Emmy gifting suites and come away with many bags of shiny swag.”
Leary, Serpico and Sellitti and their Apostle Pictures produced FX’s Emmy® and Golden Globe® award nominated hit drama Rescue Me, which also received the 2012 Television Academy Honors Award, and they also produced the critically acclaimed comedy series The Job for ABC.
FX’s comedy roster includes It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, Archer, Louie, Wilfred, Brand X with Russell Brand, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, and Legit (early 2013).
FX Productions co-produces the award-winning hit drama series Sons of Anarchy and award-winning hit drama series Justified. FXP produces the critically acclaimed hit comedy series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, Louie, Archer, Wilfred, Brand X with Russell Brand, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell and Legit.
