Lee Daniels series “Our People” pilot has been ordered by Fox.
According to Variety, Fox has given a pilot order to the single-camera comedy project that hails from Lee Daniels and Vali Chandrasekaran.
Based on the Israeli series “Nevsu,” Daniels and Chandrasekaran’s series entitled “Our People” follows a man from a bombastic African family who doesn’t have a world in their native language for “privacy” and his fiancee from a mid-western family as they try to build a normal life together — though nobody agrees on what “normal” means. The project received a put pilot commitment at the network in September.
Chandrasekaran will write in addition to executive producing. Daniels will also executive produce via his entertainment company.
Daniels already has Empire, and Star on the network.
