Ryan Reynolds` DarkFire sells "Guidance" to Fox network

Los Angeles: Ryan Reynolds` and Allan Loeb`s new TV production company, DarkFire, has sold its first project -- a single-camera comedy -- to Fox.

Tyler Labine, who plays Robert Franklin in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" is set to star and produce in "Guidance."

Here`s how strongly the network feels about the project: It`s a premium script with a significant penalty. So it`s almost a certain that the network will at least film a pilot. DarkFire, which launched in May, has a first-look deal at Fox.

Loeb`s "Just Go With It" co-writer Tim Dowling wrote the script to the adult buddy comedy set in a high school.

Executive producers are Dowling, Reynolds, Jonathon Komack Martin, Steven Pearl and Loeb.
