Fox has made its first series pickups of the season with a trio of half-hours. In its bid to beef up its live-action offerings, the top-rated network has ordered single-camera comedies from both 20th Century Fox TV and Universal Television. Ben & Kate, previously Ben Fox Is My Manny, and The Goodwin Games hail from the former; the Untitled Mindy Kaling comedy comes from the latter.

Games comes from How I Met Your Mother scribes Carter Bays, Craig Thomas and Chris Harris and stars HIMYM guest star Becki Newton along with Scott Foley and Jake Lacy as siblings who inherit their late father’s fortune — if they agree to his terms. The HIMYM trio created the project with Newton in mind after the actress guest-starred on their long-running CBS hit, which already has been renewed for next season.

Congrats Becki and the rest of the cast and the crew of The Goodwin Games!! We’re so happy!! Can’t wait to see it!

With the upfronts around the corner, THR has a look at which pilots are gaining steam heading into the broadcast networks’ presentations to Madison Avenue buyers. With less than two weeks to go until the broadcast networks roll out their plans for the 2012-13 television season, it’s crunch time for the more than 80 pilots bidding for a slot on the fall (and midseason) schedule. Here are a collection of the comedies and dramas gaining steam heading in to crunch time. Worth noting: While early buzz can be a good indicator, it doesn’t always translate to a series order.

Despite mixed reviews internally, prospects are still good for The Goodwin Games, from How I Met Your Mother scribes Carter Bays and Craig Thomas and starring Becki Newton and Scott Foley.

We really hope it will get picked up! We’re so excited for the show!!

Becki recently booked the lead role in The Goodwin Games, a pilot from HIMYMcreators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas that centers around a group of siblings whose father has died.

“[On the show,] these three siblings reunite and are sent on this adventure that the father has set up before he passed,” she says. “On the surface, it’s to get them to compete to win his fortune, but what it really is, is three siblings coming together. So there’s this surface element of a great game and adventure, but I believe it’s a family story underneath it all.”

She says that her time on Mother, with its marriage between comedy and drama, was part of the reason she signed onto the pilot. “[These writers] can handle that balance better than anyone.”

“The Goodwin Games” from Carter Bays and Craig Thomas (creators of CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother”), along with writer Chris Harris. The pilot centers around three radically different siblings — a straight-laced overachiever (Scott Foley), an underachieving genius (the fantastic Becki Newton) and ne’er-do-well (Jake Lacey) — who recently lost their incredibly wealthy father. Before he died, he created a series of intricate games to make them compete for inheritance, and in the process, teach them a little more about being a family.
