Fox Buys Priest Drama From ‘House’ EP

Former House executive producer Thomas Moran is back at Fox with a new drama project. The network has handed a script commitment with sizable penalty to St. Nick, an irreverent drama about a young Catholic priest going down a morally corrupt road for all the right reasons. Moran is writing and executive producing for 20th Century Fox TV. Moran, repped by the Shuman Co. and attorney Michael Gendler, currently consults on another 20th TV drama, the Howard Gordon-produced Legends for TNT (through Fox 21). He was on House for the medical drama’s entire eight-season run, rising through the ranks from supervising to executive producer, and previously worked on JAG and NCIS.

  • This sounds like ABC’s Nothing Sacred which was pretty controversial and made ABC never want another show about the Catholic church. If this makes it to air, I wonder if it will be as controversial.

  • Tommy is a talented and creative writer who has developed his craft on many successful series programs. These shows that have earned significant acclaim largely for his contribution. I’m sure this will be well worth watching.

  • The show was originally going to be an “irreverent drama” about a mullah, but Fox didn’t want to come across as intolerant.

  • Tommy is way cuter than that picture.

  • Hmmm….another “irreverent” drama to attempt to entertain by an “Ayn Rand” kind ethos…going down the counter- path for the right reasons…Hmmm
