‘Luther,’ ‘Frankenstein’ Among Fox Pilot Orders.

Fox threw its hat into the pilot ring Tuesday night, picking up three dramas including adaptations of and Frankenstein as well as a comedy from The Mindy Project’s Charlie Grandy.

The network has ordered four pilots, dramas Frankenstein, Luther — a remake of the acclaimed British series — and Rosewood, and comedy comedy 48 Hours ‘Til Monday. Fox describes him as “a near-genius murder detective whose brilliant mind can’t always save him from the dangerous violence of his passions.” Neil Cross, who created the original program, is writing and executive producing. Now younger and stronger, Pritchard will have to choose between his old temptations and his new sense of purpose Ravich will pen the script and executive produce alongside Gordon and his 20th Century Fox Television-based Teakwood Lane banner. In an interview with Deadline over the weekend, Walden discussed Fox’s desire to keep the Monday lineup masculine, piloting broad, genre-themed projects as candidates to join newly renewed Gotham.

Written and executive produced by Crisis and Life creator Rand Ravich and executive produced by Homeland and Tyrant executive producer Gordon, Frankenstein, which had a put pilot commitment, is described as a grounded sci-fi drama. Taking inspiration from the basic Mary Shelley mythology of a man brought back to life by scientists playing god, Frankenstein centers on Ray Pritchard, a morally corrupt retired cop, who is given a second chance at life when he is brought back from the dead. Charlie Grandy is writing the pilot, which Fox calls, “a show about one husband’s desperate struggle to not let every weekend go completely to hell.” Grandy, Peter Traugott, and Rachel Kaplan are executive producing. Also executive producing the pilot, from 20th TV, studio-based Chernin Entertainment and BBC Worldwide Prods., are the Chernin company’s Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope and BBC Worldwide Prods’ Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner.

His eternal optimism will frustrate the cynical female detective he often works with, but she can’t argue with the results that his unique perspective provides. In addition to Luther, Fox also has ordered Rosewood (previously Autopsy), a close-ended procedural written/executive produced by Todd Harthan (Psych).
