Deputy: Stephen Dorff Police Drama Lands Series Order at Fox

Joseph Baxter May 14, 2019

Fox has picked up Deputy, a police drama starring Stephen Dorff, developed by Aquaman’s Will Beall and Suicide Squad’s David Ayer.

Deputy, an upcoming Fox TV police drama, is a modern-day Western offering that might evoke memories of the celebrated FX series, Justified. The police drama stars Stephen Dorff as an old-fashioned copper who’s been appointed to lead of one of the world’s largest constabulary organizations, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department.

The drama, which hails at eOne and Fox Entertainment, arrives with some serious creative personnel, notably Will Beall, who wrote the screenplay to the 2018 smash hit, Aquaman, 2013’s Gangster Squad, as well as TV’s Castle and Training Day. Additionally, David Ayer steps in as director for the pilot, bringing experience from films like Suicide Squad, Fury and Bright. Beall and Ayer will also serve as executive producers, joined in that capacity by Chris Long.

Fox Picks Up 4 New Drama Series: ‘Prodigal Son’, ‘Deputy’, ‘NeXt’ & Weisman/Katims; What Does It Mean For Network’s Bubble Dramas?

  • Deadline
Fox just made its first new series pickups, ordering four of its six drama pilots to series. That includes cop/serial killer drama Prodigal Son, starring Tom Payne and Michael Sheen; John Slattery’s AI drama neXt; police drama Deputy, headlined by Stephen Dorff; and the Annie Weisman/Jason Katims sister drama; based on an Australian format.

The drama competition at Fox had been fierce virtually from the start with five of the six pilots emerging as solid contenders. The fifth in the group — soapy family drama Filthy Rich, headlined by Kim Cattrall, which is considered a suitable companion to Empire — remains in contention with deals being worked out.

The mass pickup of new drama series at Fox, which only ordered two new hourlong shows last year, is not good news for the network’s bubble dramas, Lethal Weapon, The Passage and Star.

Fox Orders Live-Action Comedy Series ‘Outmatched’ and Animated ‘The Great North’

I hear Fox’s sixth drama pilot, Tom KapinosLovestruck, is not going forward at the network. But the show, whose first season takes place over the course of single night at a wedding, reportedly had tested well and has been well received within 20th Century Fox TV, which is expected to shop it elsewhere, similarly to its 2018 Fox pilot Mixtape, which was picked up to series by Netflix.

Of the newly picked-up Fox dramas, one, neXt (plus Filthy Rich), comes from Fox’s former corporate sibling 20th Century Fox TV. The others come from other studios, Warner Bros. TV (Prodigal Son), Universal TV (Weisman/Katims) and eOne (Deputy), underlining the now-independent network’s commitment to work with all suppliers. All are co-productions with Fox Entertainment. The Fox drama lineup also includes top acting talent with Sheen, Slattery and Dorff.

The pickup of Prodigal Son makes it 3-for-3 for Berlanti Prods., with all three of the company’s broadcast pilots this season going to series, including the CW’s Batwoman and Katy Keene.

Prodigal Son passed one of the biggest tests for a pilot – recasting its lead, with Payne replacing originally cast Finn Jones after the pilot read. Payne and Sheen, who plays his father, proved a formidable duo, drawing praise for their acting — especially Sheen who has a showcase role as a notorious serial killer.

2019 Fox Pilots and Series Orders

Police drama Deputy has been praised for Dorff’s acting and the directing work of Bright helmer David Ayer. eOne secured Dorff in what might be the biggest talent deal so far this broadcast pilot season. Dorff will reportedly be paid north of $200,000 an episode. If the show goes to a second season, Dorff would become an executive producer. In conjunction with his casting in Deputy, Dorff made a feature script development deal with eOne to develop and star in a movie, which would be produced by Ayer and Chris Long’s Cedar Park Entertainment.

The four dramas join two comedies picked up to series today by Fox, Outmatched (fka Geniuses) and animated half-hour The Great North. and previously ordered straight-to-series animated comedies Bless the Harts and Duncanville.

Fox Orders Four More Dramas, Two More Comedies for 2019-2020 Season
The New Fox is ramping up for the 2019-2020 season with six new series pick ups.

The broadcaster handed out orders for four dramas — “Deputy,” “Prodigal Son,” “neXt,” and the untitled Annie Weisman/Jason Katims project — as well as two comedies. One of the comedies is the animated series “The Great North” and the second is the multi-cam “Outmatched,” formerly known as “Geniuses.” These orders join the previously announced straight-to-series orders for the animated comedies “Duncanville” and “Bless the Harts” at Fox.

Each of the newly announced pick ups is a co-production with Fox Entertainment (formerly Fox Broadcasting). The move will allow Fox to maintain a stake in the shows despite not having a vertically-integrated studio like they did before the 21st Century Fox-Disney merger that saw 20th Century Fox Television move under the Disney umbrella. Both “Duncanville” and “Bless the Harts” are co-productions as well. “Duncanville” is produced by Universal Television,

‘Aquaman’ Blu-ray Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Nicole Kidman, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, Ludi Lin, Michael Beach, Randall Park, Graham McTavish | Written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, Will Beall | Directed by James Wan

Directed by James Wan (Furious 7), Aquaman is the latest DC superhero to get the solo movie treatment, having previously appeared in both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. The success of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman clearly influenced many a studio memo, because there’s a concerted effort to move away from the doom and gloom of the Zack Snyder DC movies, but the overall results are mixed.

Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) reprises his role as Arthur Curry, a beefy, bearded, seabound superhero who spends his days thwarting pirates and various other aquatic ne’er-do-wells, before returning to his local bar and boozing with his lovelorn dad, Tom (Temuera Morrison). However,

‘Deputy’: Bex Taylor-Klaus Joins Fox Drama Pilot In Recasting

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Fox’s drama pilot Deputy is recasting one of the female leads opposite star Stephen Dorff. Bex Taylor-Klaus has been cast as Deputy Breanna Bishop opposite in the pilot from David Ayer, Will Beall and eOne. She replaces Jasmine Kaur, who originally was cast in the role.

As often is the case, the decision was made after the pilot’s table read when producers decided to take the character in a different direction. That led to the recasting of Kaur with Taylor-Klaus, who identifies as gender non-binary. Such changes are a normal part of the creative process and is why the networks still do pilots.

Written by Beall and directed by Ayer, Deputy centers on Deputy Bill Hollister (Dorff), a career lawman who’s very comfortable kicking down doors and utterly lost in a staff meeting. But when the L.A. County sheriff drops dead, Bill becomes acting sheriff,
