"The Short-Com Comedy Hour" is a series on FOX that builds on television's rich past to reinvent comedy for the future. Both a contemporary spin on multi-camera comedy and an alternative development platform, the series features four unique short-form sitcoms — or "short-coms" — in a fast-paced hour-long broadcast. Each short-com features both established and up-and-coming actors and comedians in one-act scenes, creating a comedy showcase brimming with today's best, brightest and freshest voices.

The short-com development process will be as distinct as the end result, featuring hand-picked talent from the world of stand-up comedy. In an effort to open up the traditional development process, FOX is facilitating a creatively open environment for comedy talent to hone their voices and material within the context of their self-produced short-coms.

In addition to airing them as part of "The Short-Com Comedy Hour," FOX is commissioning the most fully realized of these scripted vignettes to series, helping to seed the future of the FOX multi-camera brand.
