Fox has given a script commitment to “Buffalo Wings,” a new half-hour, animated comedy series about “immigrant refugee” birds, from “Nobodies” co-creators Hugh Davidson, Rachel Ramras and Larry Dorf.

Per the logline, “Buffalo Wings” centers around two Canadian brothers who do not follow the rest of their flock when they fly south. When their hypothesis proves wrong and they almost freeze to death, they must take refuge in Buffalo, New York, where they begin to live life as immigrant refugees. The series explores what it is to be a refugee and to fall in love with this country while pursuing the “American Dream” from every possible angle.

Davidson, Ramras and Dorf will write and executive produce the in-development project, which hails from 20th Century Fox.

ICM Partners reps Davidson and Ramras, alongside Loan Dang at Del Shaw Moonves LLP.
