Adam Scott/Craig Robinson Comedy Ghosted Scares Up Pilot Order at Fox

Fox ain’t afraid of no ghosts: The network has ordered a pilot for Ghosted, starring TV vets Adam Scott and Craig Robinson as a pair of L.A.-based ghost hunters.

In the single-camera comedy, first announced back in August, Scott plays the “true believer” and Robinson plays a skeptic as they team up with a secret underground society to investigate paranormal activity. Both Scott and Robinson are also executive producers on the project; Tom Gormican (That Awkward Moment) will write the pilot, and Workaholics producer Kevin Etten will serve as showrunner.

Scott and Robinson are both familiar faces in network primetime: Scott spent six seasons on Parks and Recreation and had a funny supporting role as evil demon Trevor on The Good Place, while Robinson was part of The Office‘s ensemble cast and currently recurs on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Plus, the duo costarred together in Hot Tub Time Machine 2… so they have some experience with unexplained phenomena.

Here’s the full logline for Ghosted:

A cynical skeptic and a genius ‘true believer’ in the paranormal are recruited by The Bureau Underground to look into the rampant ‘unexplained’ activity in Los Angeles — all while uncovering a larger mystery that could threaten the existence of the human race.

    I just randomly imagined them as the ghosts who help Michael J. Fox in The Frighteners and now I’m desperate to see them in a TV show version of that.

    Sounds good, but I have no faith in Fox or any other networks. They cancel good shows (The Grinder) and hold onto crap like Kitchen Nightmares or whatever it is called. Same with the other networks with garbage like The Bachelor. Anything to cater to the lowest common denominator.

      Lethal Weapon is one of the best TV series of these past 20 years, if not the best. It is a brilliant masterpiece of work from the heart by all: actors, crew, producers, writers, etc. Don’t let Fox’s callus disregard of humanity to further an agenda discourage you from capturing moments of pure enjoyment from some of their shows. One of the leads of Terra Nova indicated that the station treated the show like crap and so it got shuffled and cancelled, however, it was beyond great. I loved The Grinder, also, and it is a big loss. I feel your pain. I’m going to give the show a try.

    Scott was so funny on The Good Place! Robinson was a winner on Mr. Robot, and I’m surprised this article did not include that for a previous credit. I’m checking this show out, for sure!

    Glad their new show project got a pilot order today! Excited to see them back on TV!
