Good News! The Man Who Brought Us ‘Veronica Mars’ is Bringing His Latest Show to the Network that Brought Us ‘Arrested Development’

Veronica Mars and Party Down might be just memories now, but it appears that the genius of Rob Thomas will live on.  Previously, Thomas, along with Party Down co-creators, John Enbom and Dan Etheridge, received a pilot order from NBC for their workplace comedy Temp.  Keeping the ball rolling, Thomas has now been granted a pilot from Fox for his latest project, Little in Common, which has been described as  “three families whose lives have become intertwined through youth sports,” which sorta sounds like Modern Family, but with unrelated clans.  Or Perfect Couples with kids.  But if Thomas can do with families what he did with a sassy teenage detective and hopeless Hollywood caterers, then Fox may have its best sitcom since Arrested Development.  And if we can get three seasons out of this one, we’ll be happy.

Now we imagine “youth sports” will include activities like soccer, baseball, basketball, maybe dance or ice skating.  But may we recommend kickball?  We already know that Thomas has that one down cold.
