Fox has greenlit the pilot “This Might Hurt,” a medical comedy from writer-director Jason Winer. Casting will begin shortly on the show, which will go into production later this fall.
“This Might Hurt” revolves around a multi-specialty private practice, in which a pediatrician, an internist and an OB-GYN all operate under the same roof.
Winer said the idea for “This Might Hurt” came out of his time clocked at the doctors’ office, where he realized how infallible physicians appear to be.
“One of the funniest things in the world to me is pain,” he said.
Winer is on board to direct the single-camera comedy, and will executive produce with Guy Walks into a Bar’s Matthew Weinberg, Todd Komarnicki and Jon Berg.
