death row baby? now that's comedy

Variety reported yesterday that Greg Garcia, creater/producer of recently cancelled My Name is Earl, is creating a new pilot for Fox. It's a half-hour comedy about a 25-year-old who has an affair with a woman imprisoned on death row for murder and winds up having to raise the resulting baby with the help of his weird family.

Now, I'm all for dark humor. Written in the world of My Name is Earl, maybe this could work. After all, that Earl had some really messed up shit on his to-do list. But...a death row baby? At least make it a cute kid. No reason to make life even harder with an unfortunate case of ugly baby.
