Fox has a script commitment deal with Darren Star and Anthony Horowitz for Raffik (working title) – a fish out of water story about an Albanian police officer who moves to the US, and with some humor really gets into the American lifestyle.

Why? Because Borat was a really cool movie.

Bravo started production on a new docu-drama called Manhattan Moms which follows several rich socialites and their families as they contend with private schools, charity galas, running businesses and running off to the Hamptons to their summer homes.

Why? Because The Nanny Diaries was a lousy movie.

NBC bought Clash of the Choirs from BBC Worldwide. Five celebs return to the hometown, form a choir and sing out as viewers vote.

Why? Because singing celebrites and the people who hate them are fun to watch.

ABC has given a script commitment to Foobar, about a group of computer geeks all working together at the same software company, from Alice Wu.

Why? Because nothing is as compelling as watching people code.
