Fox Broadcasting Co. has given a 13-episode series order to a buddy comedy starring rappers Method Man and Redman.
"Method & Red" revolves around the fish-out-of-water antics that ensue when two highly successful rappers move into a predominantly white, affluent gated community in New Jersey. The two are all set to revel in the high life until Method Man's mother decides to move in with them and restore a little order to the house.
"These guys are so funny and charming," Fox executive vp Craig Erwich said. "They have a very original voice, and they bring a unique group of characters in terms of their ensemble."
The series was created by Kell Cahoon ("Just Shoot Me"), who is executive producing along with Will Gluck (Fox's short-lived sitcom "Luis"). It started with a pitch from Method Man for a show that would offer a hip-hop twist on the "Odd Couple" theme.
The project was put on the development fast track last year, and the pilot wrapped production late last month, a time when most comedy pilots are still in the casting stage.
Fox executives have said they intend to launch several new series during the summer months this year, but Erwich said no decision has been made on a premiere date for "Method & Red."
