It’s just what everyone wanted, a sequel series to the quickly-cancelled ‘$#*! My Dad Says!’  Okay, well not really, but sort of .  ‘Scrubs’ and ‘Cougar Town’ creator Bill Lawrence has begun a development deal with FOX to bring to the screen Justin Halpern’s ‘ I Suck At Girls,’ the author’s latest novel to feature his famous father and his cantankerous attitude.  But will ‘I Suck At Girls’ succeed where ‘$#*!’ failed, or will Halpern’s dad end up cursing both out?

Justin Halpern might be optioning his latest novel into a TV series once more, but don’t expect the Shat to hit the fan this time.  According to TVGuide, ‘Scrubs’ creator Bill Lawrence has partnered with the famous author to adapt his latest novel ‘I Suck At Girls’ for FOX, in the form of a half-hour sitcom.  Incorporating the same father from Halpern’s famous ‘S#*! My Dad Says’ twitter feed.

In Halpern’s latest novel, the character meets up with his father once more to inform him of his planned proposal to his girlfriend, before the father invites him to sit back and reevaluate his life before such a big decision.  The single-camera comedy has been put to a pilot order, written and executive produced by Halpern and Patrick Schumacker.  Lawrence and Jeff Ingold will also produce the series.

And no, William Shatner will not be involved.

What say you?  Could FOX have a hit on their hands with another of Halpern’s novels?  Will ‘I Suck At Girls’ avoid sucking in its own right?  Give your take in the comments below!
