Fox Orders Wilmer Valderrama Pilot


Fox has ordered a one-hour comedy pilot starring That '70s Show actor Wilmer Valderrama.
The project, titled The Emancipation of Ernesto, follows Valderrama's character--an innocent of sorts, in the vein of Forrest Gump--as he searches Los Angeles for his father. Written by Emily Kapnek, who created ABC's Emily's Reasons Why Not, the single-cam comedy is produced by 20th Century Fox TV.
Should Fox pick up Ernesto, it would mark the network's first one-hour comedy since Ally McBeal.
