Two single mothers who dream of fighting crime end up policing neighborhood code violations instead. “The Enforcers” certainly doesn’t sound like your average buddy cop show — and we have writers Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer to thank for that.
The pair — who have previously worked together on the likes of “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” “Joey” and “Friends” — will write and executive produce the new single-camera comedy. Gail Mancuso (“Modern Family,” “Fresh Off the Boat”) is set to direct.
“The Enforcers” is part of a 2016-17 TV lineup which sees Fox make a further push toward more diverse programming. The network has a pilot for a sitcom centered on an interracial family in the works, news of which follows an earlier announcement of a girl-group music drama starring Queen Latifah (as well as a “24” reboot with Corey Hawkins of “Straight Outta Compton” fame in the lead).
