The series also stars Tommy Dewey, JT Neal, and Marcello Julian Reyes. Liz Astrof serves as writer and executive with Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor of Kapital Entertainment also executive producing. Tristram Shapeero directed and executive produced the pilot. Warner Bros. Television and Fox Entertainment produce along with Kapital.
Astrof’s past credits include shows like “The King of Queens,” “2 Broke Girls,” “The Conners,” “Trial & Error,” “Whitney,” and “Last Man Standing.” “Pivoting” was originally ordered to pilot at Fox in 2020 but production was delayed due to the pandemic.
News of the series order comes on the same day that Fox announced a Season 2 pickup for its multi-cam comedy “Call Me Kat” starring Mayim Bialik.
“Pivoting” is the latest series pickup Fox has made for next season going into upfronts. Last week, the network ordered the drama “The Cleaning Lady” starring Elodie Yung and the county music drama “Monarch.” Other pickups include the dramedy series “The Big Leap,” an animated comedy set in ancient Greece from Dan Harmon, the drama “Our Kind of People” from Karin Gist and Lee Daniels, and the mockumentary series “This County.”
