sonny lee's pilot broke friends goes to fox

I just heard from Sonny Lee, a writer on the FX sitcom It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (which, by the way, is freaking hilarious), who tells me that he and his writing partner Patrick Walsh just sold their sitcom pilot Broke Friends to Fox.

According to Variety, the project came to the network after a competitive bidding situation with NBC. The show centers on an innocent Midwestern kid who relocates to New York, where he moves in with two scam artists. The show will be directed and executive produced by Luke Greenfield, whose credits include directing the critically acclaimed pilot Aliens in America.

I was happy to hear about Sonny getting the It's Always Sunny gig, and even happier now to hear about this. Very cool to see Asian Americans making strides both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. Check out Sonny's blog here.
