FOX books Brett Ratner for 'Cop House'
Rachael Harris and Ajay Naidu will join Tony Hale in the comedy pilot
While Brett Ratner's next feature project may be a mystery, he's expected to go behind the camera for the FOX comedy pilot "Cop House."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, not only will Ratner direct the 20th Century Fox TV comedy about a halfway house for troubled cops, he'll also executive produce along with Adam Resnick, Marty Adelstein and Michael Thorn.
Having Ratner ("Rush House 3") at the helm hasn't always been a path to pilot success. He did the pilot for FOX's "Prison Break," which will end its run this spring after four seasons, but his most recent pilot, NBC's "Blue Blood," wasn't sent to series.
The trade also reports that Rachael Harris and Ajay Naidu will join Tony Hale in the "Cop House" cast. Harris will play the house's only female cop, who somehow end up there for posing nude for Hustler. Naidu's officer has a drinking problem.
You know Naidu as Samir from "Office Space," though his other credits include "Pi," "Righteous Kill" and "The Wrestler."
A veteran of "The Daily Show," Harris has been seen in "Notes from the Underbelly" and "Worst Week."
