Dana Fox, writer of "Couples Retreat" and "What Happens in Vegas," has sold a script for a single-camera comedy to Fox Broadcasting Co. with a significant penalty, the network told TheWrap.

The script, currently titled "Ben Fox Is My Manny," will revolve around "a single mom’s aimless brother [who] moves in to help her raise her baby." Fox will serve as creator, writer and executive producer. Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope from Chernin Entertainment will also executive-produce. The project comes via Chernin Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Entertainment.

In addition to her feature-film work, Fox also recently wrote an episode of the Adult Swim parody "Childrens Hospital."
