FOX MAKES PILOT PRODUCTION COMMITMENT TO SINGLE CAMERA COMEDY FROM "NEW GIRL" CREATOR LIZ MERIWETHER

THIN ICE Hails From Meriwether, Ed Macdonald, Mark Grimmer and Katherine Pope

FOX has made a pilot production commitment to the single camera comedy THIN ICE from Liz Meriwether, it was announced today by David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. The commitment marks Meriwether's first comedy development since NEW GIRL.

THIN ICE, written by Meriwether, Ed Macdonald and Mark Grimmer, and executive produced by Meriwether and Katherine Pope, centers on a woman who reclaims her dreams when she finds herself at the end of the earth - in Antarctica - surrounded by a group of brilliant misfits. The project will be produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television in early 2017.

"FOX has been and continues to be such a great home for me with NEW GIRL. And now I'm looking forward to making a pilot about the sexiest place on earth - Antarctica," said Meriwether. "And, yes, we will be shooting on location, so I think we're going to find a cast very soon," she joked.

"Liz is a great friend of ours, and her take on the important genre of South Pole comedy is as brilliant, specific and hilarious as NEW GIRL," said Madden. "THIN ICE takes place in a world that half-hour television has never touched, and does it with original characters, an inimitable voice and Liz-style surprising romance. It's as fresh and distinctive as anything we've read this year, and we're excited to move forward with Liz and her fantastic team of Ed, Mark and Katherine."

THIN ICE is a production of Twentieth Century Fox Television. Liz Meriwether wrote the pilot script with Ed Macdonald and Mark Grimmer. Meriwether and Katherine Pope serve as executive producers; Macdonald and Grimmer serve as co-executive producers.
