Fall TV Scoop: Fox Orders 5 Comedies, Including Chris Meloni’s Jack and Ritter-Bledel Sitcom

Piggybacking on Wednesday’s drama pickups, Fox has ordered five new comedy series for the 2013-14 season, including the Jason Ritter/Alexis Bledel romantic satire Us & Them (fka Friends & Family) and the Andy Samberg-fronted sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Also receiving series orders from the network are the military-themed Enlisted, Chris Meloni’s Surviving Jack and Seth MacFarlane’s previously-greenlit live-action sitcom Dads.

Among the noteworthy comedy pilots not getting the go-ahead from Fox: Rob Riggle’s Gabriels and the Kelli Garner starrer Two Wrongs. (Fox’s complete development slate can be found here.)

Here’s the logline/casting/pedigree info for each of the new series:
