With dramas like Fringe and Dollhouse headed to Fox next season, it’s almost easy to overlook some of their other new series, including their new comedies, one of which is written by Arrested Development writer, Abraham Higginbotham. The working title of this new show is Do Not Disturb.
Here’s part of the description that Fox posted on their website:
“DO NOT DISTURB (working title) is a hilarious workplace comedy set at one of New York City's hottest and hippest hotels: The Inn. Named one of the Big Apple's "10 Best Places to Stay," The Inn is just that - the "in" place to be, with its chic decor, stylish staff and celebrity clientele. Behind the scenes, however, the upstairs/downstairs dynamic tells quite a different story.
The hotel's top-notch reputation and sophisticated look is due in large part to NEAL (Jerry O'Connell, "Crossing Jordan") - at least in his opinion. Although The Inn's charismatic owner R.J. (guest star Robert Wagner) takes all the credit, Neal is the egotistical, hyper-stylish, detail-oriented general manager who will do whatever it takes to keep the hotel and its employees up to his standards.”
A show about a hotel with a bunch of quirky employees? Meh. But I suppose with the former Arrested Development writer working on this series added to the fact that Jason Bateman directed the pilot, I’ll most likely watch the first episode of Do Not Disturb (or whatever it’s called, since the title could end up changing) when it premieres this fall.
As it stands right now, Do Not Disturb is set to air on Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. on Fox starting this fall.
