Fox Picks Up Supernatural Comedy Produced By Affleck and Damon

Fox is moving into development with a half-hour supernatural comedy from 30 Rock writer/producer Colleen McGuinness, to be executive produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

Deadline reports the project, from Universal TV and Affleck and Damon's Pearl Street Films, has been given a script commitment plus penalty. The pilot will focus on a 25-year-old woman whose average life as a frozen yogurt shop worker is changed when she discovers she possesses the power of telekinesis.

McGuinness, who wrote for the final two seasons of 30 Rock and served as a supervising producer last season on NBC's About a Boy, will executive produce alongside Affleck, Damon and Jennifer Todd of Pearl Street.

This marks the second pilot McGuinness has sold; NBC recently bought an untitled comedy that will be produced by 30 Rock showrunners Tina Fey and Robert Carlock.
