Diving deeper into the original series biz, Starz has given a 10-episode order to a half-hour dark comedy from multihyphenate Eric Schaeffer and Seinfeld alum Jill Franklyn.

Pay cabler also has a number of prospective series in development, including another project from Rob Thomas, creator-exec producer of the Starz comedy Party Down, and a comedy from Matthew McConaughey's production shingle.

The Schaeffer/Franklyn series, tentatively titled Failure to Fly, revolves around a support group for people who tried to commit suicide but are now embracing their second chance at a happy life.
