"We've had our eye on them for a long time," says Dana Walden, chairman of 20th Century Fox TV, describing the two as "incredibly funny" and "incredibly beloved."

Goldman and Donovan began working as a team on Fox's Family Guy, and later moved to NBC's Scrubs, where they served as executive producers until the show's eighth season.
