The Office head Greg Daniels sells tennis comedy to Fox

Date December 17, 2012

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - "The Office" might be preparing to close up shop, but the series' creator is most definitely still open for business.

Greg Daniels, who birthed the American version of "The Office" - which is preparing to wrap up its run at the end of this season - has sold a half-hour comedy to Fox via Universal Television and his own Deedle-Dee Productions.

The project was sold through Daniels by Tom Gormican ("Are We Officially Dating?") and Richie Keen ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"), who are also writing.

The as-yet-untitled project will revolve around Richie, a so-so tennis pro who returns to his college town to get a fresh start on life. There, Richie finds himself torn between living the carefree life with his bar-owning brother and growing up to pursue Kristen, the love of his life.

Daniels will executive-produce the project via his Deedle-Dee Production, along with Gormican and Keen.

Deedle-Dee's Howard Klein and Tracy Katsky are also executive-producing, along with Oly Obst.
