Fox comedy pilot to be directed by ABC sitcom veteran

The wingspan of Modern Family knows no bounds. Steve Levitan (co-creator to the hit ABC series) is directing a pilot for Fox called LAX -> Vegas. Coming from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Superstore producer, Lon Zimmet, the show is a workplace comedy set on the Friday night and returning Sunday flight to and from Los Vegas. Some underachievers decide to try to win big in the neon city.

The pilot was bought as a spec last summer, writes Deadline, and now it's one of the "hottest" pilots this season. Damon Wayans Jr. is said to also be attached. Gary Sanchez Productions -- which includes the likes of Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy -- will aid in producing.
