Fox has officially ordered the pilot for "Fatrick," which is backed by a hefty comedy lineup.

The show is written by "Dont Trust the B---- in Apt 23" creator  Nahnatchka Khan and Corey Nickerson (co-executive producer of "Apt 23", "The Crazy Ones") and directed by Oscar winners Nat Faxon and Jim Rash ("The Descendants," "The Way Way Back"). The four will also executive-produce the series.

The network had made a pilot production commitment in August to the project. The series centers on Patrick, a thirtysomething man who seems to have it all. But he soon finds himself "forced to face the damage caused by years of being Fatrick: a chubby little kid just trying to survive."  The show, from 20th Century Fox Television, will mix the present with flashbacks.

It's Fox's first comedy pilot for the 2014-15 season. The network gave out more generous series orders to a Tina Fey-backed comedy and a John Mulaney comedy.
