Rob Riggle Comedy Pilot Lands at Fox

Rob Riggle Fox Comedy

The ubiquitous Rob Riggle is planting his flag at Fox.

The actor — who has appeared on The League, Bad Judge, Modern Family and New Girl, to name a few — will star in a single-camera comedy pilot for the network, our sister site Deadline reports.

The project, which is based on the Austrian comedy series Braunschlag, follows the quirky inhabitants of a small, struggling town whose mayor (played by Riggle) is prepared to do anything to save his community.

Steve Hely (The Office, 30 Rock, American Dad) will executive-produce alongside Riggle.

    I thought they were giving his “Modern Family” character a spin-off? Did that just not go forward or was it never seriously in-contention?

    Ubiquitous? I’ve never heard of him, but then I don’t watch any of those shows.

    he’s still not funny
