ABC has purchased Bill Lawrence’s Feel the Force, an ensemble cop comedy the Cougar Town and Scrubs alum adapted from a British series and will executive produce. It’s a single-camera project with a put pilot (meaning the network has agreed to air or else incur substantial penalties – I had to look this up FYI).
