Fox has committed to a pilot for the political drama Worthy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Written by In Treatment's Davey Holmes, Worthy follows an Arizona politician who is involved in a hit-and-run accident and gets blackmailed by the mob. The concept was inspired by the recent downfalls of such real-life politicians as Rod Blagojevich, and will include homages to the fallen figures, Holmes said.

"I've long been fascinated with antiheroes," he said. "I feel some of the more interesting programs on the air feature that type of character, and I thought there was a wonderful place right now for a political story along those lines."

Fox will start casting the project soon.
