The actor, who signed a first-look TV deal with the network, may direct an upcoming untitled single-camera comedy that he wrote, according to Deadline.

FOX's president Kevin Reilly released the following statement:

    “Jonah is one of the most prolific young talents in comedy today, and possesses a fearless, wickedly smart sensibility that’s perfect for FOX."

As for working with FOX, Hill adds:

    "I wanted to create JHF so I and all of the talented writers I know could write funny and interesting television shows that we’d love to see: Allen Gregory being the first, and hopefully many more to follow. I am a lucky guy to get to do what I do for a living, and hope to help create that opportunity for talented young writers and performers.”
