Fox has given a series prototype order to Home from Jerry Bruckheimer, TVGuide.com has learned.
The family thriller delves into the secrets lingering behind the façade of a suburban family. Additional scripts have been ordered beyond the pilot, putting the network in position for a fast transition to series production. These atypical pilot orders come on the heels of Fox boss Kevin Reilly declaring pilot season dead at the winter press tour.

The fall TV season is taking shape. Networks have ordered dozens of new pilots starring familiar faces like Friends' David Schwimmer, and from proven producers like How I Met Your Mother bosses Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, 30 Rock's Tina Fey and Arrow's Greg Berlanti.

Less than 24 hours after Brooklyn Nine-Nine's surprise double wins at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly touted the network's Tuesday slate of comedies while also saying that he hopes for growth.
"I'm very proud of all four shows. I think they've all performed very well. ... We put a nice little crown on top with our wins," Reilly told reporters Monday at Fox's Television Critics Association winter previews. Although Reilly called the low ratings for Dads, Brooklyn, New Girl and The Mindy Project "a frustrating situation," he also noted that all four comedies are "at the top of the pack" compared to comedies on other networks. "Some of our mature shows are down ... so it's been a mixed bag, but the positive side is some of our new shows have performed....

Fox has put the cuffs on Murder Police. The animated comedy, which had been picked up for 13 episodes, won't air on the network after all. Instead, producer 20th Century Fox TV plans to shop the show to cable.

If there's one new fall show that everyone seems to have an opinion about, it's Dads, the new Fox comedy from the production team behind Family Guy. Based on the pilot episode alone, the show has been derided as "racist," "offensive" and "morally wrong" by critics. But Fox is using the backlash as a selling point — using such comments in promos for the show to try to foster tension between fans and (in the network's telling) and out-of-touch critics. And the show's producers — Seth MacFarlane, Wellesley Wild and Alec Sulkin of Family Guy, along with former Simpsons showrunner Mike Scully — don't seem to mind the negative attention either.
"We're used to it. That's what we do," Wild tells TVGuide.com.
